In this letter, we provide a performance evaluation of a Multi-Band Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MB-OFDM) with adaptive modulation in a multipath fading channel. The MB-OFDM system in conjunction with adaptive modulation technique can be considered as one of the solutions for severely degraded channels such as those common in frequency selective fading environments.
