Abstract

We consider a unified framework comprising both multicarrier code-division multiple-access (MC-CDMA) and orthogonal frequency-division multiple-access (OFDMA), and discuss nonlinear prefiltering for downlink transmissions based on Tomlinson-Harashima precoding. The base station (BS) is equipped with multiple transmitting antennas and channel state information is assumed to be available at the transmit side. We design the prefiltering matrices so as to minimize the sum of the mean square errors at all mobile terminals when a conventional single-user data detector is employed at the receiver side. In this way, most of the computational burden is moved to the BS, where power consumption and computational resources are not critical requirements. Computer simulations are used to assess the performance of the proposed scheme under different operating scenarios. It turns out that OFDMA outperforms MC-CDMA when the system resources (subcarriers and/or spreading codes) are optimally assigned to the active users according to the channel quality.
