dc.description.abstractThis paper presents a performance analysis of multiband orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) in ultra wideband (UWB)-based personal area networks (UPANs). A UPAN consists of devices with different UWB technologies at the physical layer. Approximate expressions for the outage probability and average bit error rate (BER) are derived in closed form for the MB-OFDM target receiver, taking into account multi-user interference (MUI), as well as external interference in the form of time-hopping (TH) and direct-sequence (DS) UWB signals. © 2010 IEEE.
