Abstract:

This report is made up of two parts. In the first part we present additional results on the performance of random access protocols for mobile packet radio networks. The effect of three different types of diversity reception in Nakagami fading environment on the channel throughput and the average packet delay of nonpersistent carrier sense multiple access NPCSMA protocol is considered. Expressions for the probability of packet error with diversity receptions are newly obtained for both independent and correlated diversity branches. A noncoherent frequency shift keying modulation scheme is assumed. In the second part a comprehensive study of the problem of synchronization over fading dispersive channels is presented. Synchronization is a fundamental problem in digital communications as used in mobile radio. In the first chapter, we consider a simple binary detection problem. The effect of receiver mismatch is investigated. A closed form expression for the probability of false alarm and probability of detection are given, also a set of curves are provided to demonstrate the amount of degradation for under-spread channels with some special scattering.
