WiMAX is one of the most promising IEEE 802.16 standards. This paper carries out a study of IEEE 802.16d OFDM layer and mainly concentrates on the Forward Error Correction (FEC) based on IEEE 802.16 standard. Forward error correction coding is a system of error control for data transmission. FEC is accomplished by adding redundancy to the transmitted information using a predetermined algorithm. It may improve the reliability of transmitted data. The authors will verify this result through MATLAB (Version 7.8).
