A Software Defined Radio (SDR) is a radio which can tune to any frequency band, transmit and receive different modulations and different physical parameters across a large frequency spectrum by using a programmable hardware and powerful software. An SDR performs significant amounts of signal processing in a general purpose computer, or a reconfigurable piece of digital electronics or the combination of both. In this paper, we seek to explore the viability of using GNU Radio; an open source SDR implementation and the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP); an SDR hardware platform, to transmit and receive the OFDM radio signal with QPSK and BPSK modulation. Quality of Service (QoS) in terms of Packet Received Ratio (PRR) on the data transmitted will then be investigated and analyzed.
