Effect of Cyclic Prefix on OFDM Signal


To fulfill the 4G network systems requirement, higher reliability and high spectral efficiency are required. To achieve this Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is considered to be the best modulation technique for 4G - networks. OFDM can provide large data rates with sufficient robustness to radio channel impairments. OFDM is designed such a way that it sends data over hundreds of parallel streams which increases the amount of information that can be sent at a time. It can offer high quality performance in terms of bandwidth efficiency, robustness against multipath fading and cost effective implementation. A guard time, in the form of cyclic prefix (CP), is inserted between OFDM symbols to eliminate both the intersymbol interference (ISI) and the inter-channel interference (ICI). In this paper we have studied the effect of cyclic prefix on data rate using OFDM modulation techniques. For this method to work efficiently the space between sub carriers should be maintained exactly at the specified position which satisfy the condition of orthogonality Zero padding (ZP) of multicarrier transmissions has recently been proposed as an appealing alternative to the traditional cyclic prefix (CP) orthogonal frequencydivision multiplexing (OFDM) to ensure symbol recovery regardless of the channel zero locations.
