To be able to define a more complete channel modelization, compared to the one studied druring the first year teaching unit "Bases on Telecommunications".

To be able to implement one of the following techniques to transmit through a time and frequency selective channel:

- Equalization,

- Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM),

- Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA).


This teaching unit presents the telecommunication network physical layer solutions allowing to communicate on time varying and frequency selective channels: equalization, OFDM and CDMA. These solutions are currently used in several telecommunication systems, such as, for example, 3G, 4G, WiFI, ADSL and Digital Terrestrial TV. They rely on channel models described in the first teaching module.

Targeted skills

Be able to set up a model of the propagation channel to be traversed in order to be able to dimension the physical layer of the transmission system to be implemented.


Be able to set up and size the physical layer of a transmission system to cross a time and frequency selective channel.
