EE 284 F. Tobagi Autumn 2017-2018 EE284 Review Session #3 Topics: Physical Layer October 13, 2017 1 Interference and Noise in Wireless Transmission a. Consider a wireless communication channel of bandwidth W Hz. Suppose we have a transmitter receiver pair on this channel. The transmitter is a distance L from the receiver. See the figure below: We denote P t as the signal power at the transmitter, and P r as the signal power at the receiver. In this channel, signal power at a distance of x away from the transmitter is given by: P x = P t ( k x 2 ) where k is a constant term. Assume a constant noise of power N env everywhere. What is the capacity of this channel? What happens to the capacity as noise decreases to 0? Why is this the case? b. Now consider a similar situation, but with two parallel transmitter-receiver pairs. Both pairs operate on the same frequency, thus their transmissions can interfere with one another. The transmitters and receivers are a distance d away from each other. See the figure below: 1

What is the capacity of each channel, given a significant environmental noise power N env compared to interference noise? What is the capacity of each channel, given a negligible environmental noise compared to interference noise? Solution a. To find channel capacity in a noisy environment, apply Shannon’s theorem: C = Wlog 2 (1 + S N ) . In this case, the signal S at the receiver is given by S = P r = P t ( k L 2 ) Thus, we can find the capacity as follows: C = Wlog 2 (1 + P t k L 2 N env ) As N env 0, C → ∞ . This is because as we approach an noiseless channel, we can theoretically transmit infinite information with a single symbol (imagine an infinitely precise signal on a wire). Thus, the capacity of the channel also approaches infinity. b. In this case, there is interference noise from the other transmitter. Because of the symmetry of the setup, both channels experience the same interference, and will thus have the same capacity.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
