**ABSTRACT:**In wireless communication Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing is gaining its importance as it is suitable for high speed data rates. It is a multi carrier system, which is commonly implemented for transmission of signals nowadays. In this system, orthogonally placed sub — carriers are used to carry data from transmitter end to receiver end. In this paper, Bit Error Rate comparison of Discrete Fourier Transform-based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing is compared with Discrete Cosine Transform-based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing for different modulation techniques over Multipath Rayleigh Fading Channel. It is observed from results that, Bit Error Rate shift in case of Discrete Cosine Transform-based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing is less then compared to Bit Error Rate shift in case of Discrete Fourier Transform-based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing system and Quadrature Amplitude Modulation shows better performance as compared to Phase Shift Keying for higher constellation index.01/2012; - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**In this paper, the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance of Fast Fourier Transform-based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing system (FFT-Based OFDM) is compared with Discrete Cosine Transform-based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing system (DCT-Based OFDM) using Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) as a modulation technique over Additive White Gaussian Noise environment (AWGN) and Multipath Rayleigh Fading environment. From the results it is clear that, the BER shift in case of DCT-Based OFDM is less as compared to FFT-Based OFDM. In addition to this we have also compare the BER performance of FFT-Based & DCT-Based OFDM over Additive White Gaussian Noise environment and Multipath Rayleigh Fading environment and it is observed that Bit Error Rate performance of FFT-Based & DCT-Based OFDM over AWGN is better than Multipath Rayleigh Fading environment.
