Khaled Fazel Stefan Kaiser Radio System Design DoCoMo Euro-Labs Marconi Communications Landsberger Strasse 312 D-71522 Backnang, Germany D-80687 Munich, Germany The field of multi-carrier and spread spectrum communications has became an important research topic with increasing number of research activities . Especially in the last two years, beside deep system analysis of various multiple access schemes, new standardization activities in the framework of beyond 3G (B3G) concepts have been initiated. Multi-carrier transmission is considered to be a potential candidate to fulfil the requirements of the next generation system. The two important requirements of B3G/4G can be summarized as: i) much higher data rate for cellular mobile radio and ii) a unique physical layer specification for indoor/hot spot and outdoor/cellular applications, including fixed wireless access (FWA) schemes. The activities within the 3GPP and WiMAX fora are examples of such trends (see Fig. 1).

In the first step the broadband access to the so-called last mile applications with fixed positioned terminals is envisaged.
This new topic has received in the last decade great attention in the international research and industry communities
The publication of the most fresh research results on the system design, algorithmic, diversity techniques detection and interference cancellation, new trends on multi-carrier synchronisation, etc.
Will help designers, researchers and students to have access through this book to the latest research results on the applications and design of different mobile and fixed cellular systems based on multi-carrier spread spectrum, e.g. fourth generation mobile communications system
