The Effect of Narrowband Interference on Frequency Ambiguity Resolution for OFDM
— In orthogonal frequency division multiplexed (OFDM) systems affected by carrier frequency offsets, frequency ambiguity resolution, i.e. the estimation of the part of the frequency offset corresponding to an integer times the carrier spacing, is a crucial issue. The proper action of frequency ambiguity resolution algorithms can be strongly affected by the presence of disturbances, like narrowband interference (NBI). In this paper, the susceptibility of the blind and data aided ML frequency ambiguity estimators to NBI signals is investigated in an analytical way. The analytical results are verified by means of simulations. Although the estimators turn out to be essentially independent of the bandwidth of the interferers and the number of interferers, the performance of the estimators is very sensitive to the positions of the interferers.
