Abstract

An assessment of the performance of OFDM transmissions over the wideband mobile radio channel is reported. The simulation in MATLAB /Simulink is based on the CODIT channel model. The results show that BER deteriorates significantly as the mobile velocities increase from 0 to 30 m/s. Significant variability in the BER for a given channel type is quantified. For a given instance of the channel the standard deviation of the estimated BER is 20%, but when averaged over many separate instances of the same channel type, a standard deviation of 47% is found.
