Feng, Lifang, Fan, Pingzhi, Hao, Li, Loo, Jonathan and Tarokh, Vahid (2009) A new construction of signature waveforms for multi-rate multi-cell QS-CDMA systems. Wireless Personal Communications, 50 (4) . pp. 493-507. ISSN 0929-6212 [Article] (doi:10.1007/s11277-008-9620-0)


In this paper, we propose a new construction of signature waveform sets based on Generalized Loosely Synchronization (GLS) sets and different chip waveforms. The new signature sets are applied into the multi-rate multi-cell quasi-synchronous CDMA (QS-CDMA) system where each cell is assigned with a GLS set; different users in the same cell are assigned with different GLS sequences in the same GLS set; user’s different streams are assigned with the same GLS sequence but different chip waveforms. According to the properties of GLS sets, the inter-cell interference (ICI) and the multi-user interference (MUI) in the same cell can be reduced significantly. The interferences among different streams of the same user are handled by an optimal (or suboptimal) multi-stream detector(s), notice that the multi-stream detector mentioned here is also named as multi-user detector in other references. We compare the performance of the multi-rate multi-cell QS-CDMA system employing the proposed sets with that of multi-rate system employing well-known concatenated orthogonal/PN sets and that of single-rate system employing GLS sets. The results show that the multi-rate system employing the proposed sets can achieve significant interference reduction. Meanwhile the performance of multi-rate system is similar to that of single-rate system due to the inclusion of multi-user detection.
