Time Synchronization for the IEEE 802.11a/g WLAN Standard
In this paper a time synchronization algorithm for IEEE 802.11a/g OFDM-WLAN standard is presented and some modifications are proposed to simplify its implementation without sacrifice its performance. To evaluate its feasibility this algorithm is compared with others found in the literature. The comparison of performance has been carried out by simulation in multipath channels, at low signal to noise ratios and with carrier frequency offset. It is shown that the proposed solution has a better performance and a lower computational cost.
