Abstract. The joint transmission and detection integrated network (JOINT) is a novel OFDM-based vNP00 air interface solution for beyond 3G (B3G) mobile radio communications systems WMSL02. JOINT aims at eliminating the multiple access interference (MAI) and improving the system capacity by the application of MIMO techniques applied in the service area (SA) based system architecture. In a SA based structure the intra-SA multiple access interference (MAI) can be easily combated by algorithms like, e.g., joint detection (JD) Kle96,Ver98 in the uplink. The parameters like, e.g., the SA size, the system load and reuse factor show great impacts on the system performances, in terms of the average bit error rate (BER) and the BER statistics. Spectrum efficiency of JOINT is also investigated based on the simulation results.
