OFDM vs Frequency Hoping spread spectrum

  1. Aug 27, 2006 #1
    Hi i am not surew i have well understand some issues about modulation schemes. I have read that the 802.16 use ofdm modulation and FHSS technique. Can someone explain whats the difference between OFDM and FHSS and how these two things cooperate?

    ODFM is how data is encoded on the carrier.
    FHSS is a chanel switching algorithim.
