Coherent times and preamble rates of different wireless standards

Started by Dan25 September 1, 2013
Hi,

I want to get actual values of the channel coherence time and preamble
percentage used in practical wireless standards (e.g. GSM, WCDMA, LTE...).

1). I have referred the GSM and LTE standards (some ETSI documentations).
But I couldn't find a definition or a value for channel coherence time.
There are frame times and slot times.

Can someone please advice to find the practical channel coherence times for
these standards?

2). I also need to find the preamble percentage (how often do the preambles
are transmitted) for different systems. In Standards, preamble / training
structure is presented but rate is not presented. 

I appreciate if someone can advice regarding how to find these values and
provide suitable references. 

Thanks,
Regards,
Dan.

Coherence time: 1/4 wavelength divided by typical speed of a vehicle. This is ~ milliseconds. What is preamble persentage? Vladimir Vassilevsky DSP and Mixed Signal Designs www.abvolt.com

Channel coherence time is channel dependent, and varies widely depending on the environmental assumptions. The standards themselves don't usually include this information, but many standards also have associated documents describing the channel models used for verification, and those documents will usually state or give enough information to determine the channel coherence times for the various models used. Note that for the standards you've mentioned there are multiple channel models for different situations, e.g., urban, suburban, rural, and often with varying degrees of mobility. The coherence time will vary across the different models as the mobility, terrain and other environmental assumptions change.

You can probably sort that out from the standards, but it will require studying the various packet lengths and how the preambles are applied to each.
