  16. 16. AdvantagesCharacteristics of OFDM Disadvantages • Can easily adapt to severe channel conditions without complex time-domain equalization. • Robust against narrow-band co-channel interference. • Robust against intersymbol interference (ISI) and fading caused by multipath propagation. • High spectral efficiency as compared to conventional modulation schemes, spread spectrum, etc. • Efficient implementation using Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). • Low sensitivity to time synchronization errors. • Tuned sub-channel receiver filters are not required (unlike conventional FDM). • Facilitates single frequency networks (SFNs); i.e., transmitter macrodiversity.
  17. 17. AdvantagesCharacteristics of OFDM Disadvantages • Sensitive to Doppler shift. • Sensitive to frequency synchronization problems. • High peak-to-average-power ratio (PAPR), requiring linear transmitter circuitry, which suffers from poor power efficiency. • Loss of efficiency caused by cyclic prefix/guard interval.
