Chapter 11. Methodology for Simulating a Wireless System

In this chapter we illustrate various aspects of methodology as they apply to the problem of estimating the performance of a wireless digital communication system operating over a slowly fading channel. We start with a block diagram of the system, which is shown in Figure 11.1.

System-level simulation model.

Figure 11.1. System-level simulation model.

We will assume that the design of the system is nearly complete and the following aspects of the design have been finalized:

  1. The voice signal is source encoded using linear predictive coding to produce an output bit rate of 9,600 bits per second.

  2. Error control coding is accomplished ...
