IEEE 802.16e is a mobile WiMax standard that provides broadband internet access. It uses radio frequency to offer both communication criteria, which are, line of sight and non-line of sight. IEEE 802.16e apply different modulation and coding techniques in its physical layer, which are adaptively varying according to user environments. In this paper IEEE 802.16e physical layer performance was analyzed using different modulation techniques such as QPSK, 16-QAM and 64-QAM with different coding rates 1/2, 2/3, and 3/4. BER and channel behavior of different wireless channels such as, AWGN, multipath Rayleigh and Rician channels were also introduced.
