ULTRA-WIDEBAND (UWB) FOR MULTIMEDIA APPLICATIONS
- Publication Type:
- Issue Date:
UWB communication refers to impulse radio technology, in which wireless data is transferred using time domain modulation of data and extremely narrow radio impulses (i.e. nanosecond duration) that occupy typically several GHz of bandwidth. In this paper, we simulate an indoor environment whereby the channel characteristics model of UWB is observed - Saleh- Valenzuela-4 channel model is adopted-, and tested for the feasibility of UWB system in transmitting real time multimedia as incorporating a wireless link, which UWB is the first candidate to transfer these types of data due to its features, i.e. very high data rate (up to 500Mbps), multipath immunity, LPI. Certain aspects were emphasized such as multiple user and channel effects. Designing a wireless link for a streaming video and audio with a wire-like quality was the main objective of this paper.
