Next-generation mobile communication is required to allocate the resources to all users smoothly and efficiently. But the allocation of resources is difficult in present 4G mobile communication systems using OFDM and hence in this manuscript, a new technique based on Filter Bank Multicarrier (FBMC) modulation and demodulation are designed and employed. The proposed scheme will help devices to communicate automatically employing machine learning techniques including higher data rates as per the need of users with less bit error rate. Offset quadrature amplitude modulation (OQAM) technique for FBMC is discussed and analyzed to achieve a lower bit error rate for the latest generation, 5G wireless communication
