doc.: IEEE 802.15-04/080r0 Submission February 2004 Welborn, MotorolaSlide 2 MB-OFDM & DS-UWB Interoperability Past TG3a deliberations have focused on choosing one solution of the two remaining – either MB-OFDM or DS-UWB Another solution is to choose both: –The 802.15.3 MAC is a TDMA MAC and uses central control to assign time slots for use by individual devices –This TDMA behavior can serve as the basis for the two fundamentally different classes of UWB devices to interoperate while using the 15.3 MAC Once a device is assigned a timeslot, that slot can be used for either MB-OFDM or DS-UWB transmissions, as the device chooses The basic mechanism needed to make this work is a “common language” or common signaling mode (CSM) that allows MB- OFDM and DS-USB devices to communicate at some basic level to allow time slot request and allocations
doc.: IEEE 802.15-04/080r0 Submission February 2004 Welborn, MotorolaSlide 3 Talking with each other: Basic Requirements Each class of UWB devices (MB-OFDM or DS-UWB) needs a way to send messages to the other type –MB-OFDM DS-UWB –DS-UWB MB-OFDM Even better, design a common signaling mode that can be understood by either class of devices Goal: Minimize additional complexity for each type of device while enabling this extra form of communications –Use existing RF components & DSP blocks to transmit message to “other-class” devices –Also need to support a low-complexity receiver –Lower rate mode could be acceptable if it can be used to provide robust control functions

doc.: IEEE 802.15-04/080r0 Submission February 2004 Welborn, MotorolaSlide 5 Overhead of a Slower Beacon for Superframe Assume a heavily loaded piconet: 100 information elements in beacon “Fast” 15.3a beacon overhead with 100 IEs (e.g. CTAs) @ 55 Mbps (15 us preamble + 107 us payload + 10 us SIFS) / 65 ms = 0.2 % CSM beacon overhead, assume 100 IEs (e.g. CTAs) @ 9.2 Mbps (50 us preamble + 643 us payload + 10 us SIFS) / 65 ms = 1.1 % Overhead (as a percent) would be higher for shorter superframe duration Conclusion: Slower beacon data rates can lead to acceptable increase in beacon overhead (Too slow? at 1 Mbps, overhead grows to ~10%) Beacon Preamble SIFS Beacon Payload Total Beacon Overhead Total Superframe Duration (65 ms) Other Traffic
doc.: IEEE 802.15-04/080r0 Submission February 2004 Welborn, MotorolaSlide 6 Other MAC Issues CSM simply becomes a required data rate “mode” for both classes of devices –Higher data rates (110, 200) are also required, but can be implemented in device for either MB-OFDM or DS-UWB (or both) PNC records DEV capabilities –MB-OFDM or DS-UWB or both –Also announced to other DEVs in piconet CSM used for beacon and control traffic when required –Used for MCTA traffic between dissimilar devices –Similar devices (DEV/PNC pair) negotiate CMS or native mode for MCTA CSM can also be used for data traffic between dissimilar devices during assigned CTAs
doc.: IEEE 802.15-04/080r0 Submission February 2004 Welborn, MotorolaSlide 7 Conclusions The creation of a common signaling mode will allow co- existence and interoperability between DS-UWB and MB-OFDM devices Minimum useful data rate for 15.3 MAC-based interoperability is ~10 Mbps A Common Signaling Mode is described that: –Provides interoperability in a shared piconet environment –Prevents coexistence problems for two different UWB PHYs –Requires minimal additional cost/complexity in MB-OFDM & DS- UWB Almost no additional complexity for transmit Multiple options for receive using either time or frequency domain DSP blocks in MB-OFDM radio –Can achieve desired data rates and robust performance
