Wireless communication industry has attained a tremendous growth from last two decades. The most concerning issues are reliability and the efficiency of data transmission. The channel noise, fading, interference in a transmission media are the main challenges for the reliable transmission. These effects can be mitigated by using error detection and correction techniques. One such error correction method is convolution coding. This paper is to analyze the performance of different decoding techniques of convolutional codes such as list Viterbi decoding, soft-LVA (List Viterbi Algorithm), Continuous-LVA, Sequential Opportunistic Decoding with Puncturing (SOD-P) and multiple attempt decoding.
