Summary:
Time domain synchronous orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (TDSOFDM) has higher spectral efficiency than the standard cyclic prefix OFDM (CPOFDM) OFDM by replacing the random CP with the known training sequence (TS), which could be also used for synchronization and channel estimation. However, TDSOFDM requires suffers from performance loss over fading channels due to the iterative interference cancellation has to be used to remove the mutual interferences between the TS and the useful data. To solve this problem, the novel TS based OFDM transmission scheme, referred to as the unified timefrequency OFDM (UTFOFDM), is proposed in which the timedomain TS and the frequencydomain pilots are carefully designed to naturally avoid the interference from the TS to the data without any reconstruction. The proposed UTFOFDM based flexible frame structure supports effective channel estimation and reliable channel equalization, while imposing a significantly lower complexity than the TDSOFDM system at the cost of a slightly reduced spectral efficiency. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed UTFOFDM substantially outperforms the existing TDSOFDM, in terms of the system's achievable bit error rate.
