Abstract: In this paper, MIMO is paired up with OFDM to improve the performance of wireless transmission systems. Multiple antennas are employed both at the transmitting as well as receiving ends. The performance of an OFDM system is measured, considering multipath delay spread, channel noise, Rayleigh fading channel and distortion. In this paper, bits are generated and then mapped with modulation schemes such as QPSK, 8PSK, and QAM. Then, the mapped data is divided into blocks of 120 modulated data where a training sequence of the data is inserted both at the beginning and ending parts of the block. The equalization is used to determine the variation to the rest of data. The singular value decomposition (SVD) and water filling algorithm have been employed to measure the performance of the MIMO-OFDM integrated systems. Therefore, the capacity is increased by transmitting different streams of data through different antennas at a same carrier frequency. Any intersymbol interference (ISI) produced after the transmission is recovered by using spatial sampling integrated with the signal processing algorithm. Furthermore, the performance remains the same with different combinations of transmitting and receiving antennas.
