A guard interval (in the form of a cyclic prefix) is only needed in a
frequency-selective channel. In a simulation using only AWGN, it would
be a waste of time to simulate the guard interval.

Hi all,
I'm working on the Matlab Simulink DVB-T demos (2k). I'd like to
understand:
After the IFFT block, the frames composed by 2048 data samples ( or
elementary symbols of 7/64us duration) are sent to the AWGN channel.
But, according the standard ETSI EN 300 744 v.1.12 (1997-08) on which the
model is based, an OFDM symbol should be composed by 2176 elementary
symbols (2048+128 of Guard Interval). It means that in this model there is
no guard intervals? So I should include a new Guard Interval Block?
thanks in advance for your help
