We study the performance of an innovative communication scheme for ultra-wideband systems which are based on impulse radio in two different short-range communication scenarios: the proposed system relies on both the introduction of the cyclic prefix at the transmitter and the use of a frequency domain detector at the receiver. Two different detection strategies based either on the zero forcing (ZF) or on the minimum mean square error (MMSE) criteria have been investigated and compared with the classical RAKE, considering two scenarios where a base station transmits with a different data rate to several mobile terminals in an indoor environment characterized by severe multipath propagation. The results show that the MMSE receiver achieves a remarkable performance, especially in the case of highly loaded high data-rate systems. Hence, the proposed approach is well suited for high-throughput applications in indoor wireless environments where multipath propagation tends to increase the effects of the interference.
