Information Capacity Of High Data Rate Wireless Networks

Grant number: DP0209658


Future wireless networks must support huge data rates in order to meet the escalating demands of emerging Internet applications. Required capacities far exceed those which can be provided by existing wireless systems. Space-time coding is one very promising new technique which may provide a solution. In spite of the potentials of this technique, there are many important practical issues that affect the realizable capacities. We aim to investigate two such issues: the impact of channel uncertainty at the receiver, and the impact of multiple access interference. This research will provide new directions for the design of wireless data networks.
