Hybrid CDMA / ISMA Protocol in Rician Fading Channel in Indoor Wireles Data Communications

More Info


This thesis describes the performance analysis of a star-connected, indoor wireless computer data communication system using direct-sequence code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) and Hybrid CDMA / Inhibit Sense Multiple Access (ISMA) protocol. The channel performance is investigated in terms of bit error rate (BER) and the protocol performance is investigated in terms of traffic-throughput and throughput-delay characteristics. To enhance the performance, a diversity technique using Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC) is used. Comparison of the simulation results with the analytical results is also performed.
