Abstract: in recent years, wireless communication has experienced a rapid growth and it promises to become a globally important infrastructure. One common design approach in fourth generation 4G systems is Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA). It is a single carrier communication technique on the air interface. It has become broadly accepted mainly because of its high resistance to frequency selective fading channels. The third Generation Partnership Project-Long Term Evolution (3GPP-LTE) uses this technique in uplink direction because of its lower peak to average power ratio PAPR as compared to Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) that is used for downlink direction. In this paper the LTE in general and SCFDMA will be discuss in details and its performance will be study under two types of subcarrier mapping which are localized and distributed mode also within different channel cases. The results show that the localized subcarrier mapping give lower bit error rate BER than the distributed mode and give different activity under miscellaneous channel cases.
