W2BC: A Proposal for a Converged Baseband Implementation of WiMax and WiFi Transceivers

ihsan lami, Ali Al-Sherbaz


Abstract



There have been many attempts to converge wireless teraservers functionality and implementation at various layers. The approach of this work is to explore the similarities of the OFDM signals, as used in WiMax and WiFi, to converge their baseband implementation at the physical layer. The proposed W2BC solution reduces implementation complexity, size, power, and cost, while preserving signal and communication integrity for standalone WiMax and WiFi functionality. This paper reviews the convergence approaches that lead to the proposed W2BC implementation, explain the mathematical derivation, describe the simulation model and discuss the test results for real-world usage scenarios.
