Digital transmission combining BLAST and OFDM concepts: experimentation on the UHF COST 207 channel

Abstract : Recent papers have shown that multipath wireless channels are capable of enormous capacities, provided that the multipath scattering is sufficiently rich and is properly exploited. A layered space-time architecture, known as BLAST, has been proposed. A basic hypothesis made by the BLAST algorithm is that the symbol period is large compared to the maximum echo delay (hence, the data rate cannot be too high). In this paper, we use an approach that combines BLAST and OFDM. Its interest is to suppress the data rate constraint. First, the symbols are packed into matrices; then matrix manipulations prior to BLAST transmission provide a transmission system which is theoretically equivalent to many independent BLAST channels. Results obtained with the UHF COST 207 channel corresponding to GSM transmission in urban area are provided and discussed.
