Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Power-limited region is when

    • A.

      Bandwidth utilization factor is less than 1

    • B.

      Bandwidth utilization factor is greater than 1

    Correct Answer
    A. Bandwidth utilization factor is less than 1
    Explanation
    In a power-limited region, the bandwidth utilization factor is less than 1. This means that the amount of data being transmitted is less than the maximum capacity of the available bandwidth. In other words, the system is not fully utilizing the bandwidth resources and there is still capacity available for additional data transmission. This could be due to various factors such as low network traffic or inefficient data transmission protocols.

    Bandwidth-limited region is when

    • A.

      Bandwidth utilization factor is greater than 1

    • B.

      Bandwidth utilization factor is less than 1

    Correct Answer
    A. Bandwidth utilization factor is greater than 1
    Explanation
    The bandwidth utilization factor represents the ratio of the actual bandwidth utilized to the maximum available bandwidth. When the bandwidth utilization factor is greater than 1, it means that the actual bandwidth being used exceeds the maximum available bandwidth. This indicates that the system or network is operating beyond its capacity and experiencing congestion or overload.

    B. Use MIMO at the receiver and the transmitter
    C. Increase the channel bandwidth
    Explanation
    The most efficient method to increase the channel capacity in a bandwidth-limited region is by using MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) at both the receiver and the transmitter. MIMO technology utilizes multiple antennas to transmit and receive multiple streams of data simultaneously, thus increasing the overall capacity of the channel. Additionally, increasing the channel bandwidth also helps to enhance the capacity by allowing more data to be transmitted at a given time. Therefore, combining MIMO with an increased channel bandwidth is the most effective approach to maximize the channel capacity in a bandwidth-limited region.

    Combining 16QAM or 64QAM with channel coding may produce less bit-error probability, compared to QPSK.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Combining 16QAM or 64QAM with channel coding can result in a lower bit-error probability compared to QPSK. This is because 16QAM and 64QAM allow for higher data rates by transmitting more bits per symbol, but they are also more susceptible to noise and interference. By using channel coding techniques, errors can be detected and corrected, improving the overall reliability of the transmission. Therefore, it is true that combining 16QAM or 64QAM with channel coding can reduce the bit-error probability.

  • 8. 

    16QAM or 64QAM uses more bandwidth and produces less bit-error probability compared to QPSK.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    16QAM or 64QAM does not use more bandwidth compared to QPSK. In fact, these higher order modulation schemes use the same bandwidth as QPSK. However, they are capable of transmitting more bits per symbol, which increases the data rate. Additionally, the bit-error probability of 16QAM or 64QAM is generally higher compared to QPSK due to the increased complexity of the modulation scheme. Therefore, the statement that 16QAM or 64QAM uses more bandwidth and produces less bit-error probability compared to QPSK is false.

  • 9. 

    The modulation scheme that has the highest variations in instantaneous transmit power is   

    • A.

      64QAM

    • B.

      QPSK

    • C.

      16QAM

    Correct Answer
    A. 64QAM
    Explanation
    64QAM has the highest variations in instantaneous transmit power because it uses a higher number of amplitude and phase combinations to represent data compared to QPSK and 16QAM. This means that the signal in 64QAM can have more distinct levels, resulting in a wider range of power levels being transmitted. As a result, the instantaneous transmit power can vary more significantly in 64QAM compared to the other modulation schemes.

    Even though the large variations in instantaneous transmit power for higher-order modulation schemes, the transmit power amplifier can operate with 100% efficiency.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even though higher-order modulation schemes may have large variations in instantaneous transmit power, the transmit power amplifier cannot operate with 100% efficiency. Transmit power amplifiers typically have some level of inefficiency due to factors such as non-linearities and power dissipation, which prevent them from achieving perfect efficiency.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The higher-order modulation schemes are more suitable for the downlink compared to the uplink due to variations in instantaneous transmit power.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Higher-order modulation schemes require higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for reliable transmission. In the downlink, the base station has more power and can transmit signals with higher SNR to the user devices. This allows for the use of higher-order modulation schemes in the downlink, resulting in higher data rates. However, in the uplink, user devices have limited transmit power, which may not be sufficient to support higher-order modulation schemes. Therefore, the statement that higher-order modulation schemes are more suitable for the downlink compared to the uplink is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    In order to provide high data rates as efficiently as possible in terms of required signal-to-noise ratio, the transmission bandwidth should be at least of the same order as the data rates to be provided (bandwidth utilization factor =1).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To provide high data rates efficiently, the transmission bandwidth should be at least of the same order as the data rates. This means that the bandwidth utilization factor should be 1, indicating that the entire bandwidth is being used effectively to transmit the data. If the bandwidth is lower than the data rates, it may result in a lower signal-to-noise ratio, leading to decreased efficiency and slower data transmission. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Time dispersion

    • A.

      Time dispersion occurs when the transmitted signal propagates to the receiver via multiple paths with different delays.

    • B.

      Is the time required for a data symbol to propagate from the base station to the terminal mobile

    • C.

      Is the delay of a radio packet

    Correct Answer
    A. Time dispersion occurs when the transmitted signal propagates to the receiver via multiple paths with different delays.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is time dispersion occurs when the transmitted signal propagates to the receiver via multiple paths with different delays. This means that when a signal is transmitted, it can take different paths to reach the receiver, and each path may have a different delay. This can result in the signal arriving at different times, causing dispersion.

    Frequency selectivity

    • A.

      Is the frequency response of a channel that suffers of a time dispersion problem

    • B.

      Is the Doppler dispersion

    • C.

      Is the bandwidth of the channel that is selected in frequency division multiplexing

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Is the frequency response of a channel that suffers of a time dispersion problem
    Explanation
    Frequency selectivity refers to the ability of a channel to selectively transmit or attenuate certain frequencies. In the given answer, it states that frequency selectivity is the frequency response of a channel that suffers from a time dispersion problem. This means that the channel's frequency response is affected by a delay or spreading of the signal over time, causing distortion in the transmitted signal. Therefore, the correct answer implies that frequency selectivity is related to the channel's response to time dispersion issues.

    B. Better performance against frequency selectivity
    C. The design for an equalizer is easier for bandwidths larger than 5 MHz
    D. It can perform well even at the edge of a cell
    Explanation
    OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is used in 4G systems for several reasons. Firstly, it provides better performance against time dispersion, which refers to the spreading of a signal over time due to multipath propagation. OFDM divides the signal into multiple subcarriers, allowing it to combat the effects of time dispersion. Secondly, OFDM also offers better performance against frequency selectivity, which is the variation of signal strength at different frequencies. By using multiple subcarriers, OFDM can mitigate the effects of frequency selectivity. Additionally, the design for an equalizer is easier for bandwidths larger than 5 MHz in OFDM, making it a practical choice for 4G systems. Lastly, OFDM can perform well even at the edge of a cell, ensuring reliable and consistent connectivity throughout the coverage area.

    One of the main reasons for using multi-carrier for transmitting high data rates is to avoid the frequency selectivity problem.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Multi-carrier modulation is a technique used to transmit high data rates by dividing the available frequency spectrum into multiple subcarriers. Each subcarrier carries a smaller portion of the total data, allowing for efficient transmission of high data rates. One of the advantages of multi-carrier modulation is its ability to combat frequency selectivity. Frequency selectivity refers to the variation in channel characteristics across different frequency components. By using multiple subcarriers, multi-carrier modulation can mitigate the effects of frequency selectivity, ensuring reliable transmission of high data rates. Therefore, the statement that using multi-carrier helps to avoid the frequency selectivity problem is true.

    • A.

      Multicarrier transmission

    • B.

      One carrier transmission

    Correct Answer
    A. Multicarrier transmission
    Explanation
    WCDMA/HSPA uses multicarrier transmission. This means that it uses multiple carriers or frequencies to transmit data simultaneously. This allows for increased capacity and higher data rates. By dividing the available spectrum into multiple smaller carriers, WCDMA/HSPA can efficiently utilize the spectrum and accommodate multiple users at the same time. This technique is commonly used in modern cellular networks to provide high-speed data services.
