doc.: IEEE 802.11-03/825r0 Submission November 2003 Ravi Mahadevappa, Stephan ten Brink, Realtek Slide 2 Overview 128QAM for increasing data rate of 802.11n –MIMO 2xN: can achieve 2x54Mbps = 108Mbps in 20MHz –108Mbps peak too small to get 100Mbps MAC throughput –MIMO 2xN, 128QAM, R=7/8 code, 20MHz: 147Mbps achievable Consider four 128QAM constellations/labelings –Determine the one which is most suitable Performance comparison using mutual information in bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM) [1], [2] BER chart in AWGN and Rayleigh channel PER chart in an 802.11a-like setting (2x2, 2x3 MIMO)

doc.: IEEE 802.11-03/825r0 Submission November 2003 Ravi Mahadevappa, Stephan ten Brink, Realtek Slide 3 Introduction Bit Interleaved Coded Modulation (BICM) –Gray-labeling of the constellation points is best to achieve a low bit error rate (BER), if no iterative decoding is applied [2] For QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAM, 256QAM –True Gray-labeling possible, using a square constellation –Gray-labeling per I-/Q-channel –I-/Q-channel independent, can be demapped separately For 128QAM –no true Gray-labeling possible –e.g. 128QAM: 7 bits; one bit has to be “distributed” over I/Q

doc.: IEEE 802.11-03/825r0 Submission November 2003 Ravi Mahadevappa, Stephan ten Brink, Realtek Slide 6 64QAM Example: Gray-labeling 64QAM with Gray- labeling: bit labels of neighboring signal points differ by one binary digit Most systems with QAM modulation use Gray-labeling, e.g. 802.11a WLAN [3] Allows low-complexity bit detection (I/Q can be dealt with separately)

doc.: IEEE 802.11-03/825r0 Submission November 2003 Ravi Mahadevappa, Stephan ten Brink, Realtek Slide 7 128QAM Constellations: Shifted I Based on two shifted 64QAM constellations Proposed for different systems, e.g. [4] Motivation: I&Q can be demapped separately Bit labels of neighboring signal points differ by two binary digits See later: Good for iterative BICM (demapper/decoder iterations), but not good for BICM

doc.: IEEE 802.11-03/825r0 Submission November 2003 Ravi Mahadevappa, Stephan ten Brink, Realtek Slide 10 128QAM: Cross II, Gray-like Center: 64QAM with Gray-labeling as 802.11a; the 7th bit (most significant bit, MSB) is set to zero Borders: mirrored 64QAM; horizontally, vertically flipped from center, MSB set to one Labels of neighboring signal points differ by 3 digits at few places All other bit labels of neighboring signal points differ by only one binary digit

doc.: IEEE 802.11-03/825r0 Submission November 2003 Ravi Mahadevappa, Stephan ten Brink, Realtek Slide 16 Conclusion To increase spectral efficiency, the use of 128QAM is a possible option 128QAM helps to smoothen the rate table Constellation mapping and labeling important Recommendation: If 128QAM is to be considered for 11n, cross- constellation with Gray-like labeling (Cross II) should be used
