Interference Cancellation for EC-GSM-IoT
To accommodate the expected needs of the cellular Internet of Things (cIoT), the 3GPP has standardized Extended Coverage GSM for the Internet of Things (EC-GSM-IoT) as an extension to the 2G standard. It aims to offer extended coverage, lower energy consumption and support for a vast number of devices. Meeting the interference requirements of this standard presents a challenge, for which no solution has been published yet.
In this project the tasks of Adjacent Channel Interference (ACI) and Co-Channel Interference (CCI) suppression and detection are presented and analyzed. Algorithms for ACI have been evaluated. The presented solution is able to surpass the EC-GSM-IoT requirements for all coverage classes (CCs) by at least 1 dB.
