  • Publication number: 20220132334
    Abstract: A method of operating a communication system includes communicating a sounding signal to a plurality of devices through a first antenna array coupled to a basestation. The method further includes, in response to the sounding signal, communicating a response signal to the basestation from each of the plurality of devices, from the response signal determining device data comprising a device location, a signal strength of the sounding signal and phase information of the sounding signal, grouping the plurality of devices into a first group based on the device data, generating first transmit beamforming weights for the first group to shape the power output of the first beamforming weight vector to communicate a data signal to the first group and broadcasting the data signal to the first group through a wireless signal from the first antenna array using the first transmit beamforming weights and nulls.

  • Patent number: 7149238
    Abstract: A discrete multitone stacked-carrier spread spectrum communication method is based on frequency domain spreading including multiplication of a baseband signal by a set of superimposed, or stacked, complex sinusoid carrier waves. In a preferred embodiment, the spreading involves energizing the bins of a large Fast Fourier transform (FFT). This provides a considerable savings in computational complexity for moderate output FFT sizes. Point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint (nodeless) network topologies are possible. A code-nulling method is included for interference cancellation and enhanced signal separation by exploiting the spectral diversity of the various sources. The basic method may be extended to include multielement antenna array nulling methods for interference cancellation and enhanced signal separation using spatial separation. Such methods permit directive and retrodirective transmission systems that adapt or can be adapted to the radio environment.
