Wideband CDMA network sensitivity
15.1 THEORY AND PRACTICE OF MULTIUSER DETECTION
Advanced wireless Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) systems employing multiuser receivers described in Chapters 13 and 14 have gained a lot of attention during the recent years. In the beginning, the research was purely academic. In order to fully exploit CDMA capabilities, the third-generation wideband CDMA networks  have been planned to include interference cancellation (IC), as soon as it becomes feasible to implement (for details, see also Chapter 17). A number of overview papers [2–6] discuss basic features of multiuser detection (MUD) and IC techniques. Among linear IC schemes, decorrelating...
