It can be clearly seen in the modern world of digital era that we depend a lot on mobile/smartphones which in return depends on data/information to proof its worthy. To meet this increased demand of data rate, new technology is needed as for old technology like GPRS and EDGE which is beyond their capacity. So orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) takes this place as it increases the data rate in the same bandwidth, as it is also fixed. In this paper, we present a comparison between data handling using different modulations, which in turn can be assumed for bit error rate (BER) and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) curve, of non-OFDM and OFDM channel under different fading environments.
