Field trails of orthogonal frequency division modulation (OFDM) and Single Carrier (SC) transmissions are presented in this paper which puts forward experimentally obtained BER performances ahead of simulation works submitted in the literature. Instead of giving raw error performance results, experimental studies are also extended to calculate matched filter bound for both OFDM and SC systems, which matches the theoretical limit of real-time wireless medium.
