The Performance Evaluation of OFDM Based WLAN (IEEE 802.11a and 802.11g)

University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för datavetenskap och kommunikation

Abstract: ABSTRACT In the past decade there has been a steady growth in development and implementation of wireless Local Area Networks and emerged as in the largest sectors of the telecommunication industry. Wireless local area network (WLANs) provides connectivity, mobility, and much higher performance and achievable data rate. WLAN is a new medium of access technology in the Local Area Network (LAN) world. Mostly WLAN applications are used in public sectors such as airports, banks, hotels, offices, city centres because of the flexibility of the people. Orthongonal Frequency Division Multiplexing OFDM has been adopted by IEEE 802.11’s standard as a transmission technique for high data rate in WLANs. Now IEEE 802.11 standard has been expanded to a family of WLAN standards. 802.11a and 802.11g both are used Orthongonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) but operate in different frequency bands. It is shown that 802.11a provides high speed throughout the entire coverage area and long term solution however it does not provide better solution in most cases as compared to IEEE 802.11g. Matlab Simulation model based on IEEE 802.11a/g using different modulation and demodulation techniques such as BPSK, QPSK and QAM to analysis the best performance of IEEE 802.11a/g with implementation of OFDM. Keywords: Orthongonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), IEEE 802.11s family, Wireless Local Area Network, Simulation, MATLAB
