An orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)-based wireless asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) transmission system is described that is suitable for the future broad-band mobile multimedia communications. In the proposed system, guard symbols, which are cyclically extended by repeating the information symbols, are inserted before and after serial-to-parallel converted wireless ATM data symbols for OFDM transmission. These symbols are used for both wireless ATM frame synchronization and deciding the discrete Fourier transformation (DFT) start point at the receiver. A cyclically extended pseudorandom noise (PN) sequence is inserted into some of the OFDM transmission subchannels at fixed intervals and used to estimate the phase rotation, frequency offset, and delay characteristics. The proposed system does not use "symbol-by-symbol" guard-interval insertion or removal circuits, as do conventional OFDM systems. With this system, it is easy to estimate the phase rotation, frequency offset, and delay characteristics and to synchronize wireless ATM cells. Computer simulation showed that the bit error rate (BER) performance of the proposed system is better than that of a conventional "symbol-by-symbol" OFDM system
