Analysis of Effect of Cyclic Prefix on Data Rates in OFDM Modulation Techniques
4G - network systems require higher reliability and high spectral efficiency. To achieve this Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is considered to be the best modulation technique for 4G- networks. OFDM can provide large data rates with sufficient robustness to radio channel impairments. OFDM is designed such a way that it sends data over hundreds of parallel streams which increases the amount of information that can be sent at a time. It can offer high quality performance in terms of bandwidth efficiency, robustness against multipath fading and cost-effective implementation.
