Wireless communication systems utilizing orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transmissions are capable of delivering high data rates over multipath frequency selective channels. This paper deals with joint estimation/interpolation of wireless channel using pilot symbols transmitted concurrently with the data. We propose a low complexity, spectrally efficient minimum mean square error channel estimator which exploits the correlation structure of channel frequency response for reducing the complexity. Specifically, it is shown that if pilots are inserted appropriately across OFDM subcarriers, the proposed algorithm requires no matrix inversion, thereby significantly relieving the computational burden without deteriorating the performance. Moreover, the knowledge of channel correlation is also not required for the proposed estimator. Simulation results validate that the proposed technique outperforms existing low-complexity variants in terms of mean square error and computational complexity.
