The concept of Precoded EGPRS2 – PC EGPRS2 - DL has recently shown to provide significant performance gains for
EGPRS2. Gains are expected both in interference and sensitivity limited scenarios, allowing significant increase to both data capacity and spectral efficiency for EGPRS2.
Performing precoding of EGPRS2 modulated data is expected to increase robustness of the system significantly while
keeping the spectral properties of the signal intact.
This TR contains the results from the 3GPP study item on Signal Precoding Enhancements for EGPRS2
The following is covered by the study:
