Non-Traditional Modulation Schemes

The need for more and more data rates is significantly increasing due to the newly introduced wireless/mobile applications and services. Traditional modulation schemes cannot provide satisfactory long-term solution to this problem. That said, non-traditional modulation (spiral-based modulation) comes into play as a strong candidate to solve the increasing data rate requirements problem. Spiral-based modulation exploits extra degrees of freedom that are not used in traditional modulation schemes. For example, spiral-based modulation uses intra-symbol amplitude variation, time reversal, and rotational reversal to carry information, in addition to amplitude, frequency, and phase adopted in traditional modulation schemes. DragonWave Inc. is interested in adopting novel modulation techniques in its equipments to provide better communication services to the Canadian people.
