In this letter, we aim at the study of an OFDM system that employs adaptive modulation techniques to achieve efficient transmission service. In adaptive modulation techniques, a banded AM technique can reduce the number of adaptive modulation information bits and signaling overhead. We evaluate the banded AM technique and compare with Subcarrier AM technique. Moreover, to evaluate the channel condition, we apply the SNR estimation method. Furthermore, to increase the performance of OFDM system, frequency domain pre-equalization is applied. The simulation results have been shown that the OFDM system with adaptive schemes can achieve the efficient transmission for multi-media services.
