Average SER Analysis for Layered Division Multiplexing System with Index Modulation

EasyChair Preprint no. 972

6 pagesDate: May 6, 2019


A novel Layered Division Multiplexing (LDM) With Index Modulation (LDM-IM) system is proposed in this paper. It employs the Index Modulation (OFDM-IM) technology to enhance the transmission performance of the original LDM system by transmitting extra bits through the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) subcarriers indices. The proposed system is based on a two-layer, Upper Layer (UL) and Lower Layer (LL), LDM system that serves two independent data services for at least two User Equipment(s) (UE) simultaneously. Besides this, by exploiting the Index Modulation (IM), each UE can receive the extra bits by decoding the subcarriers activation patterns. To map the extra bits to the subcarriers, a simple random codebook is designed in the proposed system based on the concept of OFDM-IM. To proof the availability and reliability of the proposed system, two metrics are chosen to evaluate the system performance, the average Symbol Error Rate (SER) and the transmission rate. In this paper, the architecture of the proposed system is introduced firstly. After that, the average SER of it is analyzed and verified by the Monte Carlo simulation. Finally, the transmission rate of the proposed system and the original LDM system is compared and evaluated.
