A major goal of the next-generation wireless communication systems is the development of a reliable high-speed wireless communication system that supports high user mobility. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system is one of the most promising technologies for current and future wireless communications that has drawn a lot of attention. OFDM usually achieved by Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). In this paper, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) is replaced by SlantLet Transform (SLT) in order to reduce Inter-Carrier Interference (ICI), Inter-symbol Interference (ISI), and to improve the bandwidth efficiency by removing the Guard Interval (GI) needed in FFT-OFDM. The new structure was tested and compared with conventional FFT-based OFDM for Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel, Flat Fading Channel (FFC), and multi-path Selective Fading Channel (SFC). Simulation tests were generated for different channels parameters values. The obtained results showed the proposed system has an improved Bit Error Rate (BER) performance compared with the reference system. For SFC the SLT-OFDM performs better than the FFT-OFDM on the lower SNR region, while the situation reverses with increasing SNR values.
