Decoding Techniques for Coded FH OFDMA with Nonparametric Reception
When combined with frequency hopping and error correction coding reception techniques based on distribution-free tests provide strong immunity to various types of interference (including multiuser interference) which makes systems using such techniques promising candidates for various applications such as IoT (Internet of Things) and D2D (Device to Device) communications. Unfortunately complexity considerations impose drastic restrictions on code parameters. In this paper a decoding technique is proposed that combines list decoding, ordered statistics decoding and recently proposed distribution-free reception technique in order to ease those restrictions. It is shown that the proposed approach provides considerable Frame Error Rate decrease for the same transmission rates.
