Vector Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (VOFDM)


Vector Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (VOFDM), developed by Cisco, is an open standard for broadband wireless Internet services. VOFDM increases subscriber coverage for high-speed, high-reliability Internet, packet local and long distance telephony services and Virtual Private Network (VPN) access. VOFDM also lowers the cost of provisioning and deploying infrastructure for a wireless network, and utilizes multipath signals to enhance or recreate transmitted signals, dramatically increasing overall system performance and scalability for service providers. This allows for high data throughput in a minimum of Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum and supports extreme multipath issues existing in obstructed or partially obstructed non-line-of-sight environments.
