Background: Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) systems using Orthogonal Space-Time
Block Coding (OSTBC) gained extensive popularity in wireless applications owing to the potential
of providing improved reliability.
Methods: The performance of MIMO - OSTBC systems using error-correcting code (Convolutional,
Reed Solomon and Interleaving) schemes used to encode data streams in wireless communications
using the Rayleigh channel is reported here. These are subjected to experimentation under modulation
schemes such as Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK). Decoding occurs using the Maximum
Likelihood (ML) algorithm, which provides high data rates using spatial domains under the limits of
power transmission and limited bandwidths.
Results: Different simulations are performed to detect the best BER performance for various antenna
configurations and values of antenna configurations with Error Correction so as to use the best
outcomes to model the OSTBC.
Conclusion: Their effect of improving the overall can be noticed by the advantages of OSTBC with
the correcting codes and the maximum number of configurations.
