  • Delivering cordless telephony in the access network using `fibre-radio'

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):45 - 48
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (184 KB)

    A method of delivering cordless access is described, in which a radio distribution point (DP) is fed by an analogue optical link. Using sub-carrier multiplexing the radio path between the handset and the cordless fixed part is extended over single-mode optical fibre, in a system known as `fibre-radio'. The call processing and other functions such as frequency conversion may therefore be located at... View full abstract»

    The modulation schemes specified for the Australian satellite to mobile service are QPSK and ABPSK. With necessary firing both of these schemes give non-constant envelope signals and hence if efficient, and consequently nonlinear, HPAs (high power amplifiers) are to be employed in the transceivers some form of linearisation must be used. Considering digital predistortion in particular, simulations... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of decision-aided DPSK in the presence of multipath fading

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):157 - 162
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    A decision-aided DPSK receiver scheme is proposed, which can achieve channel equalization using data symbols alone (i.e. no additive reference information is required). It makes use of the fact that for a typical irreducible error rate of 1%, 99% of the received symbols are correctly demodulated. Using this information to remove the modulation from the incoming radio signal effectively results in ... View full abstract»
