OFDM systems due to its orthogonality factor provides significant spectrum efficiency, robustness to fading and simple cost effective implementation. One of the factors that effects the OFDM system performance is the Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) that results in the Inter-Carrier Interference (ICI) which causes a degradation of the OFDM system performance. In this paper, a discussion on the performance of Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) OFDM and Fourier Transform (FFT) OFDM is done by considering the presence of CFO in both the systems. A comparative study of both the systems is done on the basis of Bit Error Rate (BER) performance these systems show. The system is considered on the basis of improvement in the BER. Simulations conclude that the system that uses wavelet implementation performs better than the conventional OFDM system. The DWT performance even with CFO factors shows considerable improvement in the bit error performance than the FFT based traditional system. Further, the whole simulation is done under the Rayleigh channel, the performance calculated for five practical values of CFO from 0 to 0.2 with step difference of 0.05. The BER performance is simulated using MATLAB software. Further, the whole simulation is done under the Rayleigh channel, the performance calculated for five practical values of CFO from 0 to 0.2 with step difference of 0.05. The DWT based OFDM outperforms the FFT based OFDM for all the values of CFO.
