Rogério M. L. Silva, Glaucio L. Siqueira,, Leonardo H. Gonsioroski, Carlos Rodriguez Vinicio Ron


In this paper, we present a comparison between OFDM and STDCC sounding techniques used to wide band channel characterization in suburban environments at 3.5 GHz band. Measurements of the received signal's power delay profile and power level for each of the sounding techniques were obtained. These experimental results are presented and compared. For this comparison, important wide band characterization information are obtained and the performances of each one of used techniques are observed.
