Enhanced spread Aloha physical layer design and performance

By May 13, 2014 News No Comments

SUMMARY

This paper describes the key design and performance aspects of the Enhanced Spread Spectrum Aloha (E-SSA) physical layer, which represents an essential component of the S-band Mobile Interactive Multimedia European Telecommunication Institute standard. Thanks to advanced signal processing at the gateway side, the E-SSA random access protocol allows to achieve unprecedented spectral efficiency in a pure asynchronous random access mode with high robustness against received packets power unbalance. The E-SSA physical layer is closely derived from the Third Generation Partnership Wideband Code Division Multiple Access random access channel physical layer with some adaptation to best operate in the Land Mobile Satellite channels. Particular emphasis is devoted to the E-SSA physical layer system design drivers as well to the packet transmission control policies, which are of high relevance for S-band Mobile Interactive Multimedia. The demodulator architectural design is also illustrated jointly with some of the key detection performance. Finally, the E-SSA random access protocol performance are reported for Additive White Gaussian Noise and satellite mobile channels. Copyright © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

This paper describes the key design and performance aspects of the Enhanced Spread Spectrum Aloha physical layer, which represents an essential component of the S-band Mobile Interactive Multimedia European Telecommunication Institute standard. The E-SSA physical layer is closely derived from the Third Generation Partnership Wideband Code Division Multiple Access Random Access (RA) channel physical layer with some adaptation to best operate in the Land Mobile Satellite channels. The gateway exploits packet optimized Successive Interference Cancellation to boost the RA performance.
