Interference mitigation in turbo-coded OFDM systems using robust LLRs

Abstract
We look at the performance of turbo coded OFDM systems in the presence of narrowband interference (NBI) and co-channel interference (CCI). In systems employing standards such as the IEEE 802.16d/e, CCI behaves like NBI with the number of affected subcarriers ranging from 10% to 30%. Hence we treat symbol detection in such systems as detection in contaminated Gaussian (CG) noise and propose a robust log-likelihood ratio (LLR) computation for it. The proposed LLR computation method exploits the fact that NBI/CCI has a CG probability density function (pdf) but does not assume knowledge of the NBI power, NBI pdf and the fraction of subcarriers affected by NBI. Simulation results indicate that the proposed method performs very close to the optimal method which would have complete knowledge of the CG pdf parameters. ©2008 IEEE.
