Summary

We start this chapter with a brief overview of the OFDM history. Three high-profile OFDM-based wireless systems, namely, DVB-T, IEEE 802.11 WiFi, and IEEE 802.16 WiMAX, are then described. The importance of cross-layer optimization is established with a set of complex design criteria for the modern broadband wireless air interface. The chapter is then concluded with highlights of the rest of the text.
