In this paper, performance of different Multiuser Detection (MUD) receivers are investigated for a Multicarrier (MC)-Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) system in an Indoor Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). Simulation results show that benefits of MC-CDMA schemes in terms of capacity, throughput and Bit Error Rate (BER), are enhanced by means of Least Mean Square Error (LMSE) and Selective Parallel Interference Cancellation (S-PIC) receivers, at the expense of a moderate increase in overall system complexity. In particular, the S-PIC receiver is able to outperform other techniques in all the conditions examined.
