The goal for the fourth generation (4G) of mobile communications system is to seamlessly integrate a wide variety of communication services such as high speed data, video and multimedia traffic as well as voice signals. One of the promising approaches to 4G is adaptive OFDM (AOFDM). In AOFDM, adaptive transmission scheme is employed according to channel fading condition with OFDM to improve the performance. In this paper, we have considered only adaptive modulation. First we have investigated the OFDM system performance of uncoded adaptive modulation using quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) and phase shift keying (PSK). To further enhance the system, we employ convolutional coding to OFDM system. The obtained results show that a significant improvements in terms of bit error rate (BER) and throughput can be achieved demonstrating the superiority of the adaptive modulation schemes compared to fixed transmission schemes.
