Filter bank multicarrier (FBMC) systems have recently been proposed as superior alternative to the conventional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing, for certain applications. In this letter, we suggest a new preamble for FBMC systems and for it develop a near maximum likelihood joint channel, carrier frequency, and timing phase estimation method. The superior performance of our design over those already in the literature is shown through computer simulations.
