The high demand for broadband multimedia Internet access and wireless connections has increased the need for more advanced and sophisticated wireless communication systems. However, wireless channels usually provide limited bandwidth and lower quality links.

The next generation of wireless technologies is targeting two essential goals in their design and development. One is the provision of high-speed data rates up to 100 megabits per second (Mb/s) for mobile users and 1 gigabit per second (Gb/s) for stationary users. Achieving the goal of improving the data rate and increasing the system capacity is feasible through the use of more advanced signal processing and coding techniques, such as spectral efficient 64-QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation), orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), and multiple input multiple output (MIMO) topology.
