WiMAX is a broadband wireless communication system which provides fixed as well as mobility services. The mobile-WiMAX offers a special feature that has adopted an adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) in OFDM to provide higher data rates and error free transmission. AMC technique employs the channel state information (CSI) to efficiently utilize the channel and maximize the throughput with better spectral efficiency. In this paper, LSE, MMSE, LMMSE, Low rank (Lr)-LMMSE channel estimators are integrated with the physical layer. The performance of estimation algorithms is analyzed in terms of BER, SNR, MSE and throughput. Simulation results proved that increment in modulation scheme size causes to improvement in throughput along with BER value. There is a trade-off among modulation size, BER value and throughput.
