The advantage of COFDM

1.1 COFDM Modulation Method has very strong attenuation resistance, COFDM Modulation enables the transmission from the end user to a plurality of subcarriers, the signal can be kept very much longer than the signal kept in a single-carrier system correspondingly, so COFDM has a stronger resistance for impulse noise and fast channel attenuation resistance. COFDM has higher utilization of frequency and allows overlapping orthogonal subcarriers waves as sub-channels, rather than the traditional use of guard bands separating the sub-channels, so it improves the frequency efficiency, maximize the use of spectrum resources.

1.2 As for high-speed data transmission, COFDM has its self-adaptive modulation mechanism which enables subcarriers to choose different modulation methods like QPSK, QAM, 16QAM or 64QAM according to different channel conditions and background noises. If the conditions are good, then adapt itself to the high-efficiency modulation, if the conditions are bad, then adapt to the anti-interference modulation. So it can reliably adapt to a high-speed data transmission.

It has strong Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI) ability, ISI is the major interference besides noise in digital communications. COFDM by using the cyclic prefix has the strong ability of ISI.

Ease of use in combination with a variety of other methods, COFDM can be used as a modulation method, besides, it can be easily combined with many kinds of multiple access technology, providing access for multiple users at the same time. You can allow multiple users to simultaneously use the COFDM information technology for transmission.
