Abstract [en]

Over the past two decades the mobile wireless communication systems has been growing fast and continuously. Therefore, the standardization bodies together with wireless researchers and mobile operators around the globe have been constantly working on new technical specifications in order to meet the demand for this rapid growth. The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) one of the largest of such standardization bodies, works on developing the current third generation (3G) mobile telecommunication systems towards the future 4th generation. Research towards meeting the higher demands for higher data rates was the main reason for the birth of an evolution technology towards the 4th generation mobile systems. This evolution to the current 3rd generation UMTS systems was given the name E-UTRA/UTRAN Long Term Evolution (LTE) by the 3GPP. This thesis research has been carried out at the Telecommunications Research Center (ftw.) in Vienna. It was conducted in the framework of the C10 project “Wireless Evolution Beyond 3G”. One of the fields of research within this project is to have a special focus on the OFDM modulation schemes that are discussed under the new evolution technology (LTE) of the UMTS mobile networks. Therefore, this thesis focuses mainly in analyzing the new requirements, and evaluating them by designing a low-complexity UMTS-LTE OFDM based transceiver. This thesis aims mainly in studying the feasibility of this technology by means of simulation.
