Recently, the demand of high speed network in home is increasing. Some Multicarrier Modulation (MCM) based systems use FFT OFDM, and some use a Wavelet OFDM in place of FFT OFDM. Wavelet transforms consist of an M-band transmultiplexers, which use filters of greater length than the rectangular windows used in FFT OFDM. The use of symbols of longer duration allows obtaining lower side-lobe levels with respect to FFT OFDM. Better stop-band attenuation results in both lower levels of inter-carrier interference (ICI) and greater robustness to narrowband interference. For the power line channel, we have chosen two channels measured by network analyzer. The root mean square (R.M.S.) delay spreads of Channels A and B are 0.22 [μsec] and 1.1 [μsec], respectively. In this paper, the PHY (Physical layer) data rates [Mbps] achievable by Wavelet OFDM over Channels A and B are shown for two different kinds of FEC. Then, the effects of ISI and ICI on Wavelet OFDM can be compensated by increasing the number of carriers. Finally, it is shown that Wavelet OFDM characteristic is better than that of FFT OFDM about PHY rates [Mbps] with the same channels.
