In FDMA cellular radio systems, the adjacent channel interference (ACI) is suppressed by the IF filter and also by a distance factor. Channels immediately adjacent to each other in frequency are assigned to different cells and, as such, the distance plays a role in reducing their mutual interference. The authors study the feasibility of optimizing the frequency spacing between carriers such that the combined effect of distance and IF filter will be enough to control the interference while allowing the maximum number of channels in a given bandwidth. They also study the decision feedback equalizer (DFE) as a means to reduce any excess ACI that results from reducing the channel spacing. The paper starts with a model that estimates the cumulative probability density of the signal to adjacent channel interference ratio (SIR) as a function of the channel spacing. They then present the results of a computer simulation study to estimate the performance of DFE in mitigating the effect of ACI. The results indicate that, under the conditions of slow flat fading and selection diversity, the DFE is very effective in reducing the effect of excess ACI interference which allows for a considerable reduction in the frequency spacing
