In this paper, we develop an analytical framework to quantify the effects of the spreading bandwidth (BW) on spread spectrum systems operating in dense multipath environments in terms of the receiver performance, the receiver complexity, and the multipath channel parameters. The focus of the paper is to characterize the symbol error probability (SEP) performance of a Rake receiver tracking the strongest multipath components in wide-sense stationary uncorrelated scattering (WSSUS) Gaussiandoi:10.1109/49.864015 fatcat:e2ultlz265e7llp5mo4hh4fqoe
