    The continuous phase modulation (CPM) signaling scheme has gained interest in recent years because of its attractive spectral properties. Data symbol pulse shaping has previously been studied with regard to spectra, for binary data and modulation index 0.5. In this paper these results have been extended to the M -ary case, where the pulse shaping is over a one ... View full abstract»

    An analysis of constant envelope digital partial response continuous Phase modulation (CPM) systems is reported. Coherent detection is assumed and the channel is Gaussian. The receiver observes the received signal over more than one symbol interval to make use of the correlative properties of the transmitted signal. The Systems are M -ary, and baseband pulse sh...

    Correlative phase shift keying (CORPSK) is described. CORPSK is a constant envelope modulation technique with smooth transitions between fixed phase positions with successive transitions correlated. A number of CORPSK members for 2 and 4 input levels are analyzed, including tamed frequency modulation (TFM). Main lobe bandwidth is the same or less than in other constant envelope modulation techniqu... View full abstract»

    Digital data services have been offered by NTT since 1978. The largest part of the entire digital data network cost is attributable to subscriber loop transmission that includes digital service units (DSU's) and office channel units (OCU's). Therefore, it is important to reduce DSU and OCU costs for economizing on digital data services. In order to achieve this purpose, new LSI DSU and OCU have be... View full abstract»

    Formulas are derived for the congestion in single-cell mobile radio systems in which there are both land-to-mobile and mobile-to-mobile calls and in which mobile-to-mobile calls go via the base station. Two approaches are used. The first yields modified forms of the familiar Erlang and Engset formulas. The second gives more complicated but more accurate formulas.

    New analytical results are obtained on the performance of quadriphase spread-spectrum multiple-access communications. The primary performance parameter considered is the signal-to-noise ratio at the receiver output. This parameter includes the effects of multiple-access interference and channel noise, and it has been shown to give a reliable estimate of the average probability of error. View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the use of multilevel differential phase-shift keying with forward error-correcting coding as a technique for achieving limited bandwidth, yet reliable communication over a class of fading channels. Error rate bounds based on the cutoff rate are computed to show that multilevel modulation can be used to allow significant coding gains, while maintaining or reducing the bandw...

    A variation of an old but neglected pulse shaping technique, raised-cosine, is investigated. By overlapping raised-cosine pulses in each of two data streams and then by quadrature combining them, a simple QPSK/MSK type modulation results. This quadrature overlapped raised-cosine (QORC) modulation exhibits a hybrid structure of QPSK and MSK modulations. The power spectral density of QORC is shown t... View full abstract»

    Expressions are found for the effect of an error in the delay of the preceding signal, which provides the reference phase for the decoding of the present signal in differential phase-shift-keying reception. The signal-to-noise ratio is allowed to be different for the two signals that are compared by the receiver's phase detector. The results are applicable to both binary and quaternary DPSK. In ad...

    Signal space coded signaling systems have the potential of achieving significant error-rate improvement without the bandwidth expansion normally encountered when error-correcting codes are used. This paper investigates two such systems by means of computer simulation. A band-limited, nonlinear channel is assumed and both systems exhibit performance improvenment compared to uncoded systems.

    In this paper, we investigate a selective-repeat ARQ scheme which operates with a finite receiver buffer and a finite range of sequence numbers. The throughput performance of the proposed scheme is analyzed and simulated based on the assumption that the channel errors are randomly distributed and the return channel is noiseless. Both analytical and simulation results show that it significantly out... View full abstract»
