    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.

    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.

    ABSTRACT: The actual and next communication schemes tend to use OFDM systems in order to provide high baud rates, less intercarrier interference, and less intersymbol interference. OFDM has become the core of most 4G communication systems as fixed Wi-Fi system (IEEE802.11a standard), mobile Wi-Fi system (IEEE802.11b standard), fixed WiMAX system (IEEE802.16a standard), mobile WiMAX system (IEEE802.16e standard), and Long Term Evolution (LTE) system. In this paper the detailed simulation of different OFDM systems with different constellation mapping schemes will be obtained using MATLAB-2011 program to study the effect of various design parameters on the system performance. Noise Ratio (SNR).
