Here is basic information on OFDM, which is used to support high data rates in both wireless and wireline communication systemsHere is basic information on OFDM, which is used to support high data rates in both wireless and wireline communication systemsmance requirements of each type of wireless transmission. Some emphasize circuit simplicity, while others support maximum data rate, robust interference rejection, or are tailored for the specific information being transmitted. One modulation scheme of recent interest is Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). This modulation is one of several that can support high data rates. Its advantage is an ability to handle time-varying propagation, e.g., the mobile environment.
