SIGNAL MODULATION TECHNIQUES:
HOW TO OVERLAY BITS OR STREAMS OF
BITS ON A SIGNAL TO CARRY THEM?

FOR MULTIMEDIA TRANSMISSION WE
NEED TO TRANSFER A LOT OF DATA
THUS, WE NEED TO PACK THE DATA
EFFICIENTLY ON TRANSMISSION
CARRIER ( WHICH CAN BE RADIO WAVES,
ELECTRIC CURRENT, PHOTONS)

Let’s start from the beginning:
Sinusoidal Waveform
• The signal at frequency around fc:
s(t) = Acos(2pfct + q)
• To encode digital symbol of {0, 1},
–   One can encode using the amplitude A
–   One can encode using the phase q
–   One can encode using the frequency fc
–   Use some combination of amplitude, phase, or
frequency.

• The more bits we put the better signal to
noise must be (small phase and amplitude
values are lost in noise)

How to put even more bits on a signal?

By using multicarrier modulation –
bits are overlayed on many carriers at the
same time.

MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS

• ONE USES MANY CHANNELS. EACH
CHANNEL IS MODULATED E.G. WITH
8 KBITS/S. WITH MANY CHANNELS
OVERALL DATA RATE GROWS
• EACH CHANNEL CAN BE
INDIVIDUALLY TUNED TO THE

Now we have many carriers

s2 (t) = Acos(2pf2ct + q)
s3 (t) = Acos(2pf3ct + q)
………………………
sn (t) = Acos(2pfnct + q)

How the overall modulated signal will
look ?
In time domain            In frequency domain
signals overlap            they also overlap

In time domain                                   In frequency domain

The carriers must satisfy these special conditions
Then by summing and adding upp it will be possible
to separate them

1.   PSK, QPSK – GOOD FOR WEAK SIGNALS,
APPLIED IN THE GSM MOBILE SYSTEM, ALSO IN

The OFDM modulation

• It uses radio bands very effectively
• Applications in wireless networks
Digital Terrestrial Television: e.g. 8 000, 32 000
Digital Mobile Television 4 000and 8 000 carriers
Wireless LAN (802.11a/g): 52 carriers
Ultra Wide Band: many carriers in many bands
NEW 4th generation mobile system called LTE
(Long Term Evolution)- thousands of carriers

The OFDM modulation cntd.
• Applications in wired networks

It seems OFDM is the winning signal modulation
technology for multimedia data transmission:
- it allows high data bandwidth and is robust
against signal loss
- it is complicated but this is not a problem with
current hardware and computer technology

• NETWORKING FOR HOME HAS TO
BE CHEAP AND DISTRIBUTED ON
LARGE SCALE
• HOW TO MAKE IT?
- LAYING NEW CABLES – NOT
ECONOMICAL (MAYBE IN NEW
BUILDINGS)
POSSIBLE (MAYBE IN THE
FUTURE??)

c@Irek Defée   MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS
• THE ONLY REALISTIC POSSIBILITY
IS TO USE EXISTING CABLING

THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF EXTERNAL
CABLES FOR CARRYING INFORMATION
AVAILABLE IN HOMES:

TELEPHONE (ALMOST EVERYWHERE)
CABLE TV (IN MANY PLACES)

c@Irek Defée   MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS
• TELEPHONE NETWORK IS DESIGNED AS
NARROWBAND, CABLES ARE FOR
SPEECH, 4kHz BAND
BUT EVERYBODY HAS SEPARATE LINE

• CABLE TV IS DESIGNED AS BROADBAND
BUT ALL USERS SHARE
THE SAME CABLE (FOR TV SIGNAL)
IT LOOKS IMPOSSIBLE TO USE THEM

c@Irek Defée   MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS
• WITH THE OFDM TECHNOLOGY THIS
CAN CHANGE. TELEPHONE CABLE
IS NARROWBAND BUT ITS BANDWIDTH
IS NOT 4 kHz.
Bandwidth of typical telephone cable:

4kHz                  1 MHz
ABOVE THE 4kHz CABLE BANDWIDTH IS VERY
VARIABLE. IT IS DIFFERENT FOR EACH CABLE AND
DEPENDS ON DISTANCE

c@Irek Defée          MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS
• UNTIL RECENTLY UNEQUALIZED
BANDWIDTH WAS NOT USEFUL,
• NEW SIGNAL PROCESSING

- HOW THE ERROR CORRECTION IS

- HOW THE SIGNALS ARE

c@Irek Defée   MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS
• BUT FROM PRACTICE IT IS KNOWN
THAT ADSL HAS A PROBLEM TOO:

- BANDWIDTH OFFERED DEPENDS ON
DISTANCE, CABLE QUALITY AND
MAY VARY WIDELY

c@Irek Defée   MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS
provide improvements by:
- using higher signal power
- bonding several phone lines

• Ultra Wide Band is wireless network
of very short range but with very
high data transfer rate (600 Mb/s to
1000 Mb/s and more)
This network can eliminate e.g. MONITOR

• How this system operates?
It is based on a standard called Homeplug. For signal
transmission the band which is used is 2-28 MHz
with OFDM modulation. It has 917 carriers and
carriers can be independently modulated by
different modulations from PSK up to 1024 QAM
The maximum data rate can be up to 150 Mb/s,
practical rates are 40-85 Mb/s.
