carrier

n. in general, any person or business which transports property or people by any means of conveyance (truck, auto, taxi, bus, airplane, railroad, ship), almost always for a charge. The carrier is the transportation system and not the owner or operator of the system. There are two types of carriers: common carrier (in the regular business or a public utility of transportation) and a private carrier (a party not in the business, but agrees to make a delivery or carry a passenger in a specific instance). Regular transportation systems are regulated by states and by the Interstate Commerce Commission if they cross state lines. (See: common carrier, private carrier)

The entries of f belong to the initial carrier frequency set which is denoted as J.
Furthermore, the modified IEEE 802.16 pathloss model exhibits a varying dependency on distance with respect to the carrier frequency as seen in Figure 5.
we can also conclude that the energy leakage depends on the difference between the number of the carrier spacing, and the normal carrier frequency offset factor.
Example FFT measurements were able to verify that a linear FM chirp signal was shifting the carrier frequency as it should.
The electrical signals are then band-pass filtered according to the allocated RF carrier frequency [f.sub.c] = 2.4 GHz by using bandpass filters (BPFs) to get the wireless MIMO signals [MIMO.sub.1],[MIMO.sub.2], and MIM[O.sub.3].
Wireless underground sensor nodes (Sensor Node) were developed with an adjustable carrier frequency of 240 MHz, 433 MHz and 868 MHz.
Note that the performance degradation caused by the carrier frequency fluctuation is eliminated with the new combined S-DPLL + BPS carrier recovery technique.
In (3), [DELTA]f = [f.sub.c] - [f.sub.r] is the carrier frequency offset (CFO).
1 illustrates the ability of this method to address various intersystem interference scenarios, in which y-axis represents interference to noise (I/N) ratio, while X-axis shows how far the victim system is away from the center carrier frequency of the interferer.
In fact, in case of of non-zero carrier frequency offset, all R-PLL performance curves (g, e, i, and k) show that there is a range of [E.sub.b] / [N.sub.0] where performance of such a system significantly drop, and that is not the case with the proposed receiver (curves a,b, and c).
