The wireless channel introduces frequency-selective fading to the transmitted signal when the channel coherence bandwidth Bc is smaller than transmitted signal bandwidth Bs. In this chapter, we discuss the challenges and candidate solutions for digital wireless transmission over frequency-selective fading channels. We first discuss the effects of selective fading on digital wireless transmission. We then present two classes of transmission technologies for frequency-selective fading channels, namely equalization and multicarrier transmission. Special emphasis was placed on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technology, the practical discrete implementations of multicarrier transmission, as several advanced wireless systems adopt this transmission technology.
