Professor Irving Kalet, Ariel University, Israel, and Columbia University, New York, USA, is teaching this advanced five-day course, which will describe the digital modulation techniques used (or to be used) in major wireless and wireline communication systems, including 5G-NR, 4G-LTE, Wi-Fi (including Wi-Fi 6), and which are also being considered for 6G systems.
Modern digital modulation and multiple access techniques are basic building blocks of the physical (or radio) interface of all digital communication systems. We will describe many of these techniques during the course including those methods which are being used in the new systems including the Fifth Generation (5G-NR) cellular systems, which have become commercially available during the past year. We will also discuss modulations being proposed for future 6G systems. Even though 6G will only become commercially available in about ten years, there is already much discussion in industry and academia as to the modulations and multiple access techniques to be used in this new system.
We will devote much time to OFDM -based systems including OFDM, OFDMA, S-OFDMA, and SC-FDMA, which are integral parts of 5G-NR, 4G-LTE and the IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) systems.
We will place special emphasis on the new modulation standard for the physical interface of 5G-NR. This OFDM standard is based on scalable subcarrier spacing.
We will also discuss other techniques, e.g.,"Faster Than Nyquist" (FTN) signaling, which are being considered for advanced wireless systems. These modulations will be combined with MIMO, Massive MIMO, and BLAST, to improve spectral efficiency.
We will also describe the use of CPM modulations (e.g., GMSK), especially for broadband wireless communications and space communications. CPM modulations are also being discussed as candidates for 6G. All of the above modulations have been utilized in mobile and broadband wireless systems, and in xDSL systems, as well, to greatly improve both bandwidth and power efficiency.
