IPQ6010 and IPQ8072:OFDMA support in Wifi6 Solution


In the dynamic landscape of wireless communication, the techniques employed play a crucial role in optimizing data transmission and overcoming challenges. Two key technologies, FDMA (Frequency Division Multiple Access) and OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access), are pivotal in this context. This blog aims to unravel the disparities between FDMA and OFDMA, shedding light on their applications and significance in mitigating multipath interference, particularly in the realm of Wi-Fi.

The Need for Multiple Carrier Technologies:

To comprehend the essence of OFDMA, it's imperative to first delve into the concept of OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing). OFDM is a multicarrier modulation technique designed to combat multipath interference encountered in wireless communication. Multipath interference occurs when radio waves encounter obstacles, causing reflections and refractions. This phenomenon results in multiple versions of the same signal reaching the receiver, leading to what is known as multipath interference.

The Challenge of Inter-Symbol Interference:

Multipath interference directly contributes to intersymbol interference (ISI). In the realm of wireless communication, ISI poses a challenge where, for a given set of serial signals, the receiver encounters difficulty distinguishing between them. This challenge arises when the time delay between two identical signals is less than the signal's transmission interval. The outcome is known as inter-symbol interference, making it arduous for the receiver to accurately decipher the intended signals.

OFDM as a Solution:

OFDM addresses this issue by transforming high-speed serial data into parallel low-speed data streams, thereby reducing inter-symbol interference. However, OFDM comes with its own set of drawbacks. In Wi-Fi 4/5, where communication is single-user-centric, each data transmission occupies all available subcarriers. This results in inefficiencies when small data packets, such as instant messages or web browsing, are transmitted, as the entire bandwidth is underutilized.

Introduction of OFDMA:

In response to this inefficiency, Wi-Fi 6 introduced OFDMA, borrowing a page from 5G's playbook. OFDMA, despite its name's resemblance to OFDM, is fundamentally a multiple access technique. Multiple access techniques distinguish different users, and common methods include FDMA, TDMA, and CDMA.


FDMA relies on allocating different frequency channels to different users. In the analogy of a gathering, it's akin to separating rooms for distinct conversations. On the other hand, OFDMA divides the channel into Resource Units (RUs), each orthogonal to the others. In our gathering analogy, OFDMA creates individual compartments within a room, facilitating multiple conversations simultaneously.

Enhancing Efficiency with OFDMA:

OFDMA optimizes spectral efficiency by scheduling users in specific resource units instead of utilizing the entire channel for a single user, as seen in traditional OFDM. It introduces a more flexible approach, akin to efficiently utilizing a delivery vehicle by allocating designated compartments for different recipients.


In summary, while OFDM successfully addresses multipath interference by transforming data streams, OFDMA takes a step further by introducing an innovative multiple access technique. By adopting OFDMA, Wi-Fi 6 has elevated efficiency in point-to-multipoint communication, ensuring that a single cycle completes communication with multiple users. This evolution underscores the dynamic nature of wireless communication technologies, continually adapting to enhance performance and meet the demands of evolving applications.
