Abstract

There have been many attempts to converge wireless teraservers
functionality and implementation at various layers. The approach of this
work is to explore the similarities of the OFDM signals, as used in WiMax
and WiFi, to converge their baseband implementation at the physical layer.
The proposed W2BC solution reduces implementation complexity, size,
power, and cost, while preserving signal and communication integrity for
standalone WiMax and WiFi functionality. This paper reviews the
convergence approaches that lead to the proposed W2BC implementation,
explain the mathematical derivation, describe the simulation model and
discuss the test results for real-world usage scenarios.
