Optimization Techniques for ‘Pseudo-Orthogonal’ CDMA
Overview The CDMA systems presented in the previous chapters were mainly based on the synchronous or orthogonal approach. As we have discussed, orthogonal CDMA achieves maximum capacity, but it requires synchronization of all transmitting users in a multipoint-to-point access network. Such a synchronization, however, may not always be possible in a high mobility environment. In such an enviroment, we use ‘Pseudo-Orthogonal’ (PO) CDMA.
