This paper is part of a conceptual study of a multiuser OFDM system. In previous reports we have examined requirements for the air interface and presented uncoded performance (in terms of bit error rate) for the uplink of such systems. In this report we adopt the user allocation structure from the previous parts of the study and examine the role of channel coding. We present performance simulations that illustrate the effects of a convolutional code exploiting channel diversity, and channel estimator performance exploiting the channel correlation.
