In this paper, we introduce a method for out-of-band power reduction of multicarrier communication systems. Recent years MC systems possess a dominated role in wireless access due to ability to achieve high data rates and simultaneously high robustness to multipath and fading. Despite all advantages, MC transmission produces an essential out-of-band interference. The OOB radiation leads to the wastage of scarce spectral resources and severe threats to adjacent wireless channels. We propose a novel technique for reducing OOB radiations in OFDM and MC-CDMA systems. To reduce the OOB emissions in the MC-CDMA system, we propose analytical criterion for spectrum efficiency estimation as far as low complexity algebraic algorithm for the proper waveform selection. The structure of selected waveform provides suppression for radiation outside the signal necessary bandwidth. Being implemented in the OFDM system, proposed algorithm is used for calculation of phases of cancellation carriers suppressing most powerful OOB sidelobesin transmitted signal. In the final part of document we consider primer of the simple precoding procedure for OFDM systems which by 10 dB or more reduces the OOB power at the cost of inessential decrease of the information data rate.
