WIMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a promising technology which can offer high speed voice, video and data service up to the customer end. The aim of this paper is the performance evaluation of an Wimax system under different combinations of digital modulation (BPSK, QPSK, 4-QAM and 16-QAM) and different communication channels AWGN and fading channels (Rayleigh and Rician). And the Wimax system incorporates Reed-Solomon (RS) encoder with Convolutional encoder with ½ and 2⁄3 rated codes in FEC channel coding. The simulation results of estimated Bit Error Rate (BER) displays that the implementation of interleaved RS code (255,239,8) with 2/3 rated Convolutional code under BPSK modulation technique is highly effective to combat in the Wimax communication system.
