Conferences: Signal-Timing Offset Compensation in Dense TDD OFDM-based Networks
A. Agustin de Dios, J. Vidal Manzano and Lagén Morancho


Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)-based networks rely on time synchronization to obtain their best performance. Time synchronization with neighboring nodes can be satisfied by increasing the cyclic prefix (CP) length (at the expenses of spectral efficiency reduction) We show that by optimizing the transmit precompensation and receive post-compensation we can meet the
time synchronization constraints and keep the CP at its minimum value. This concept is applied to paired-bands Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) systems which tend to show inefficient occupancy of the uplink (UL)-band due to the traffic asymmetry. We consider the possibility of deploying multiple Time Division Duplexing (TDD) small eNBs (SeNBs) in the unused UL spectrum. In this scenario, time synchronization with macro eNB (MeNB) and neighboring SeNBs becomes essential. Two algorithms are proposed in order to ensure orthogonality of OFDM transmissions networkwide.
