Any wireless transmission systems have superior quality and coverage, power and bandwidth efficient and can be implemented in diverse environments. However, mostly, the wireless transmission channel endures from attenuation because of destructive and constructive count of multi-path in the propagation media. This means that severe attenuation in a multipath wireless environment makes it extremely difficult for the receiver to determine the transmitted signal unless the receiver is provided with some form of diversity, i.e., some less-attenuated replica of the transmitted signal is provided to the receiver. This paper presents BER evaluation of divergent diversities technique for wireless networks that use multiple numbers of antennas at both transmitter and receiver. The transmitter, receiver and MIMO diversities are implemented and tested.
