Chapter 1. The Role of Simulation

The complexity of modern communication systems is a driving force behind the widespread use of simulation. This complexity results both from the architecture of modern communication systems and from the environments in which these systems are deployed. Modern communication systems are required to operate at high data rates with constrained power and bandwidth. These conflicting requirements lead to complex modulation and pulse shaping along with error control coding and an increased level of signal processing at the receiver. Synchronization requirements also become more stringent at high data rates and, as a result, receivers become more complex. While the analysis of linear communication systems operating in ...
