A quite naïve question. I need some clarification regarding choosing the sampling frequency and oversampling factor. The scenario is as follows:
I have an OQPSK modulated sequence with symbol rate 2 M Symbols/sec. In order to transmit this through an AWGN channel, I am trying to half sine pulse shape this modulated sequence. I have read from a couple of online resources that before pulse shaping the sequence should be oversampled. I am currently confused by the factor that I need to oversample the sequence.
Regarding the sampling frequency, at Baseband I am confused as to what I should take as the sampling frequency. I assume that at passband of 2.4 GHz, I am considering the sampling frequency of 6 GHz but I am not sure if this is right and how should I decide on the sampling frequency if I do not consider the passband and just the baseband frequency.
