Advantages and Disadvantages of OFDM


1.Makes efficient use of the spectrum by allowing overlap.

2.By dividing the channel into narrowband flat fading subchannels, OFDM is more resistant

to frequency selective fading than single carrier systems are.

3.Eliminates ISI and IFI through use of a cyclic prefix.

4.Using adequate channel coding and interleaving one can recover symbols lost due to the

frequency selectivity of the channel.

5.Channel equalization becomes simpler than by using adaptive equalization techniques with

single carrier systems.

6.It is possible to use maximum likelihood decoding with reasonable complexity.

7.OFDM is computationally efficient by using FFT techniques to implement the modulation

and demodulation functions.

8.Is less sensitive to sample timing offsets than single carrier systems are.

9.Provides good protection against cochannel interference and impulsive parasitic noise.


1.The OFDM signal has a noise like amplitude with a very large dynamic range, therefore it

requires RF power amplifiers with a high peak to average power ratio.

2.It is more sensitive to carrier frequency offset and drift than single carrier systems are due

to leakage of the DFT.

  1. One of the main misconceptions about glass is that it is rather dull with practically no privacy. With
    all the new advances in technology- that is
    simply just not the case anymore.

    Over the years, glass manufacturers have come up with various
    types of glass like double glazed windows and patterned
    glass. You can use glass doors for your bathroom, patio and other places at your house to give
    your home an ultramodern or elegant look and feel.

    So you do not have to worry about the glass being dull or plain. Purchasing glass that has etched designs of nature like
    flowers and trees or any other categories based on your personal taste is possible nowadays.
    So finding the right kind of glass to blend with other furnishings in a
    particular room is indeed possible. There is no shortage
    of choices in terms of glass design. 

    Another benefit of glass is in terms of insulation. Glass is not
    a good conductor of heat. During our hot summer season, with all the advances
    in energy efficiency with glass, glass will not absorb heat, making the room hotter.
    During a winter or autumn period, glass will not cause much heat loss. 

    So you and your family might enjoy a more cooling effect during summer and a warmer effect during winter or autumn.
    You also save money in terms of utility bills. Since there is less heat
    loss, you can turn down the heating system to a
    lower temperature, which results in less energy consumption. During summer,
    there would not be any necessity to lower the temperature. 

    Another benefit of using glass doors and windows is that it just makes your home brighter and more cheerful feeling.
    With our famous sunny days, there might be no necessity
    to switch on lights to light up a particular place since there is sufficient natural light.
