Abstract : This paper discusses about IEEE 802.11b simulation model implemented using LabVIEW® software and its analyses for impact on bit error rate (BER) for different parameters as channel type, channel number, data transmission rate and packet size. Audio file is being transmitted, processed and analyzed using the model for various parameters. This paper gives analysis of BER verses ES/N0 for various parameter like data rate, packet size and communication channel for the IEEE 802.11b simulation model generated using LabVIEW®. It is proved that BER can be optimized by tweaking different parameters of wireless communication system.
