Some Transmission and Reception Algorithms for Superimposed Radio Signals


The electromagnetic radio frequency spectrum is a scarce and valuable
resource. Its utilization can be improved by allowing multi-layer
communications, in which several signals are simultaneously transmitted
and received in the same frequency band. In this talk I will describe
some algorithms for the transmission and reception of multi-layer
signals. These algorithms are compatible with commonly used transmitter
and receiver equipment that was not designed for multi-layer
communications. Such algorithms have great practical importance because
they yield increased network capacity and at the same time allow telecom
equipment manufacturers (including both handset and network vendors)
and wireless operators to obtain additional returns on their
multi-billion dollar investments.
