Bit Error Rate (BER) Analysis of Rayleigh Fading Channels in Mobile Communication
Author Name : Jyoti Jaiswal, Hemant Narayan
ABSTRACT: In a mobile communication environment the channel is not time invariant and is slowly varying. This characteristic feature of the channel leads to a phenomenon called Fading. Fading channels induce rapid amplitude fluctuations in the received signal. If they are not compensated for then this will lead to serious performance degradation. In this paper simulations have been conducted to study the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance of a Rayleigh fading channel and it is compared to the BER performance of the AWGN channel.
