A growing trend has been observed in recent research in wireless communication systems. However, several limitations still exist, such as packet loss, limited bandwidth and inefficient use of available bandwidth that needs further investigation and research. In light of the above limitations, this paper uses adaptive modulation under various parameters, such as signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR), and communication channel’s distances. The primary goal is to minimize bit error rate (BER), improve throughput and utilize the available bandwidth efficiently. Additionally, the impact of Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN), Rayleigh and Rician fading channels on the performance of various modulation schemes are also studied. The simulation results demonstrate that our proposed technique optimally improves the BER and spectral efficiency in the long-range communication as compared to the fixed modulation schemes under the co-channel interference of surrounding base stations. The results indicate that the performance of fixed modulation schemes is suitable only either at high SINR and low distance or at low SINR and high distance values. Moreover, on the other hand, its performance was suboptimal in the entire wireless communication channel due to high distortion and attenuation. Lastly, we also noted that BER performance in the AWGN channel is better than Rayleigh and Rician channels with Rayleigh channel exhibiting poor performance than the Rician channel.
