 Abstract
In this paper, we propose a new estimation method of time offset, frequency offset, and signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) using the synchronization channel preamble to provide IEEE 802.16.1a based talk-around direct communications (TDC). The proposed scheme estimates the time offset and frequency offset both in the time domain and in the frequency domain considering the preamble structure. In addition, it improves the estimation accuracy by combining the estimated values in two domains taking into account TDC synchronization scenarios. Through numerical simulations in the TDC channel environments, the performance of the proposed algorithm is compared with those of existing techniques such as the time domain estimation and the frequency domain estimation.
