Frequency-offset correction is considered for a HIPERLAN (HIgh-PErformance Radio LAN) system over the indoor radio channel. Since the multipath channel response is not known a priori, a viable frequency-offset estimator should not depend on such knowledge. Such an estimator, using a single sample per symbol, is derived for HIPERLAN. The estimator is shown to approach the Cramer-Rao bound for frequency-offset estimation over a multipath channel. A HIPERLAN system simulation example shows that the performance with an offset of 150 kHz is within 0.5 dB of that of a system with zero frequency offset.
