Abstract

In this study, the performance of OFDM based bidirectional relay network which employs Physical Layer Network Coding (PLNC) is analyzed in the presence of phase noise. The bidirectional relay network is assumed to consist of two sources and a relay, where each node has a single antenna and operates in half duplex mode. The PLNC based OFDM system transmits high data streams over numerous sub channels in frequency domain. Each sub channel is a narrow band flat fading channel, thereby achieving high spectral efficiency over wide band channels. In practice, phase noise is introduced with the information symbols transmitted on all subcarriers in OFDM transceiver. The influence of phase noise on the received signals are analyzed at both the Multiple Access Channel (MAC) and at the Broadcast Channel (BC) environments.
