18. Define spread spectrum techniques


In spread spectrum, the signal occupies a bandwidth in excess of the minimum necessary to send the
information the band spread is accomplished by means of a code that is independent of the data, and a synchronized
reception with the code at the receiver is used for despreading and subsequent
19. Define FDMA?
Frequency Division Multiple Access", is the division of the frequency band allocated for wireless cellular
telephone communication into many channels, each of which can carry a voice conversation or, with digital service,
carry digital data. FDMA is a basic technology in the analog Advanced Mobile Phone Service (AMPS), the most
widely-installed cellular phone system installed in North America. With FDMA, each channel can be assigned to
only one user at a time. FDMA is also used in the Total Access Communication System (TACS).
20. Define TDMA
Time division multiple access (TDMA) is a channel access method for shared medium (usually radio)
networks. It allows several users to share the same frequency channel by dividing the signal into different timeslots.
The users transmit in rapid succession, one after the other, each using his own timeslot. This allows multiple stations
to share the same transmission medium (e.g. radio frequency channel) while using only the part of its bandwidth
they requir

24. what is meant by handover technique.[MAY-2011]
In a cellular radio system having a two layer cell structure comprised by macro cells (1) overlaying
microcells (2), handover occurs only via the macro cell layer. Thus when the quality of a call handled by a microcell
(2) deteriorates below predetermined criteria the call is handed up rapidly to the umbrella macro cell and is only
handed back down to a microcell when the handset has been in that microcell for a predetermined time and the
quality of the link thereto exceeds predefined criteria.

the use two quadrature carriers for modulation. This process of transmitting 2 quadrature carrier for modulation is
known as quadrature modulation.
46. What are the design characteristics of digital modulation scheme?
Maximum data rate,
Department of ECE

Mobile And Wireless Communication

Minimum transmitted power,


Maximum channel BW,
Maximum resistance to interfering signals,
Minimum circuit complexity.
47. What are coherent digital modulation techniques?
Coherent digital modulation techniques are those techniques which employ coherent detection. In coherent
detection, the local carrier generated at the receiver is phase locked with the carrier at the transmitter. Thus, the
detection is done by correlating received noisy signal and locally generated carrier. The coherent detections a
synchronous detection.
48. What are the non-coherent digital modulation techniques?
Non-coherent digital modulation techniques are those techniques in which the detection process does not
need receiver carrier to be phase locked with transmitter carrier. The advantage of such type of system is that the
system becomes simple. But the drawback of such a system is that the error probability increases.
49. Give some advantage of QPSK:
For the same bit error rate, the BKJ required by QPSK is reduced to half as compared to BPSK. Because of
reduced BW, the information transmission rate of QPSK is higher Carrier power almost remains constant.
50. Drawbacks of MSK as compared to QPSK:
1. The BW requirement of MSK is 1.5 fb, whereas it is fb in QPSK. Actually
this cannot be said series
drawback of MSK. Because power to BW ratio of MSK is more 99% of signal.
2. Power can be transmitted within the BW of 1.2 fb in MSK. While QPSK needs around 8fb to transmit
the same power.
51. Bring out the difference between coherent and non-coherent binary modulation schemes
Coherent binary modulation
Here the local carrier generated at the
receiver is phase locked with the carrier at the
transmitter. Thus detection is done by
correlating received noisy signal and locally
generated carrier.
The coherent detection is a synchronous
detection. Here the error probability does not
decreases

Non-coherent binary modulation


Here the detection process does not need
receiver carrier to be phase locked with
transmitter carrier.
Here error probability increases.

54. What is maximum likelihood decoder?
Set f x x / mk is always non-negative and since the logarithmic function is a monotonically increasing
function of its argument we may restate the decision rule in terms of metric as follows

Set m m i, if

ln f x X / mk is maximum for k = i

Where ln denotes the a natural log. This decision rate is referred to as maximum likelihood rule and device
for its implementation is referred to as maximum likelihood decoder.
55.What is DPSK?
Differential phase shift keying is the non-coherent version of PSK. It is differentially coherent modulation
method. It does not need a synchronous carrier at the demodulator. The input sequence of binary bits is modified
such that the next bit depends upon the previous bit. Therefore in the receiver bits are used ot detect the present
bit.
56.What are the advantages of DPSK?
DPSK does not need carrier at its receiver. This means that the complicated circuitry for generation of local
carrier is avoided.
The bandwidth requirement of DPSK is reduced compared to that of BPSK
57.What is capture effect?
The capture-effect is a direct result of the rapid nonlinear improvement in received quality for an increase
in the received power. If two signals in the same frequency band are available at an FM receiver, the one appearing
at the higher received signal level is accepted and demodulated, while the weaker one is rejected. This inherent
ability to pick-up the strongest signal and reject the rest makes FM systems very resistant to co-channel interference
and provides excellent subjective received quality. This effect is called as capture-effect.

119.Wireless ad hoc network


A wireless ad hoc network is a decentralized wireless network.[1] The network is ad hoc because it does
not rely on a preexisting infrastructure, such as routers in wired networks or access points in managed
(infrastructure) wireless networks. Instead, each node participates in routing by forwarding data for other nodes,
and so the determination of which nodes forward data is made dynamically based on the network connectivity.

122. Define P2P
P2P networking has generated tremendous interest worldwide among both Internet surfers and computer
networking professionals. P2P software systems like Kazaa and Napster rank amongst the most popular software
applications ever. Numerous businesses and Web sites have promoted "peer to peer" technology as the future of
Internet networking.
123.What Are P2P Software Applications?
A good definition of P2P software was proposed by Dave Winer of UserLand Software many years ago
when P2P was first becoming mainstream. Dave suggests that P2P software applications include these seven key
characteristics: the user interface runs outsides of a Web browser
computers in the system can act as both clients and servers
the software is easy to use and well-integrated
the application includes tools to support users wanting to create content or add functionality
the application makes connections with other users
the application does something new or exciting
the software supports "cross-network" protocols like SOAP or XML-RPC
the user interface runs outsides of a Web browser
computers in the system can act as both clients and servers
the software is easy to use and well-integrated
the application includes tools to support users wanting to create content or add functionality
the application makes connections with other users

124. Define mobility models[MAY-2011]
Mobility models represent the movement of mobile users, and how their location, velocity and acceleration
change over time. Such models are frequently used for simulation purposes when new communication or navigation
techniques are investigated. Mobility management schemes for mobile communication systems make use of
mobility models for predicting future user positions
125. Define Dynamic Source Routing
Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) is a routing protocol for wireless mesh networks. It is similar to AODV in
that it forms a route on-demand when a transmitting computer requests one. However, it uses source routing instead
of relying on the routing table at each intermediate device. Many successive refinements have been made to DSR,.
126. What is a diversity receiver?
Diversity receiver is the diversity scheme applied at the receiver end of the antenna in all effective
technique for reducing interference, where selective combiner is used to combine two-correlated signal.

130. What is reflection?
Reflection occurs when a propagating electromagnetic wave impinges upon an object, which has very
large dimension when compared to the wavelength of propagating wave.
131. What is diffraction?
Diffraction occurs when the radio path between the transmitter and receiver is
obstructed by a surface that has sharp irregularities.
132. What is scattering?
Scattering occurs when the medium through which the wave travels consists of objects with dimensions
that are small compared to the wavelength and where the number of obstacles per unit volume is large.
133. Define Brewster angle?
The Brewster angle is the angle at which no reflection occurs in the medium of origin. It occurs when the
incident angle b is such that the reflection coefficient Is equal to zero.
134. Why we use 1mi intercept for mobile communication?
Within a 1mi radius the antenna beam width of a high gain omni-directional
antenna is narrow in vertical plan. Larger the elevation angle weaker the reception level.
