This paper discusses the transmission of the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) signal through the multipath fading indoor channel and its capability to combat the Intersymbol interference (ISI) as well as its eflective implementation with the discrete Fourier transform is, described.. The channel model used was based on Saleh-Valeuzqeia model with loghormd fading distribution ,of 'gain 'amplitudes. Simnlation.modules were developed and the eflect of the multipath 'on the, OFDM system. performance with BPSK, QPSK, l6PSK, 64PSK 16QAM, 64QAM, and l28QAM modulations was evaluated in terms of the bit error rate @ER) as a function of the energy per hit-tonoise ratio (EBNR). The influence of the number of carriers as well as the guard interval duration on the performance.was.'also investigated. Simulations showed that the EBNR required to achieve a certain BER is significantly increased by 8-10 dB for dense multipath fading channels over that required in AWGN channels. These performance measures are useful for the design and assessment of high speed ' indoor wireless communication systems. Keywords-. OFDM technique, Multipath fading, Indoor channel modeling.
