AbstractThis paper presents an analysis of the channel capacity, spectral efficiency and probability of outage for the 4th generation adaptive modulation ofWiMAX system. The adaptive modulation techniquesare Variable rate-Variable power, Variable rate-Constant power and Constant rate by using truncated channel inversion in the presence of Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN), Rayleigh fading and Nakagami fading.
The growing demand for wireless communication requires determining the capacity, spectral efficiency and probability of outage of these channels to evaluate the performance time varying channels.
The analysis results show the advantage of using WiMAX system with adaptive MQAM modulation techniques. Analytical results have proved that the channel capacity is improved by (38) M bit/sec when increasing the bandwidth fromMHz to 20MHz in the presence of AWGN, the capacity channel is improved by (35) Mbit/Secwhen increasing the bandwidth from 1MHz to 20MHz in the presence of Rayleigh fading with Variable rate-Variable power, the capacity channel is improved in the presence of Nakagami fading (m=2)which is (37) Mb/sec and improved (38) when (m=3) due to severe effect of Nakagami when increasing the 1MHz to 20MHz for a given SNR. However, the analysis of spectral efficiency shows that maximum spectral efficiency is accrues in Shannon capacity.The spectral efficiency decreases when Bit Error Rate (BER) increases. The analysis results show the spectral efficiency decreases (0.5) when BER=〖10〗^(-3)is used than when BER=〖10〗^(-6) is used. The probability of outage increases when the BER increase.
