Fast convolution processing has recently been proposed as an efficient approach for implementing filter bank multicarrier systems with good spectral containment and high flexibility in adjusting the subchannel bandwidths and center frequencies. These features make fast convolution filter banks (FC-FBs) a particularly interesting choice for multicarrier transmission in challenging radio scenarios like dynamic spectrum access, cognitive radio, and fragmented spectrum use. In this contribution, the target is to compare the performance of the time-domain equalizer with the frequency-domain equalizer implemented through subcarrier processing in LTE-like multicarrier systems. It is shown that integrating the equalization functions with the FC-FB processing leads to an efficient overall implementation in terms of performance and computational complexity.
