In the progress of transmission systems that uses the diversity in various domains, the execution of competent baseband receivers categorized by affordable computational load is an essential thing. This would be an imperative point in the future expansion of 4G systems in which the space, time and frequency diversity will be merged together to enhance the system throughput. Here, we develop a channel estimation technique for MC-CDMA system for the minimization of BER and the maximization of throughput. The maximization of throughput is an essential thing for the successful reception of signal. At the receiver side, the original data is obtained based on the channel estimation algorithm and the inverse process of the transmitter side is performed in the receiver side. The major contribution of our work is to estimate the channel information in an adaptive way. We estimate the channel using the cuckoo search algorithm based on the best solution we obtain from the cuckoo search algorithm. After estimating the channel, we calculate the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance and throughput based on the acknowledgement send by the receiver. Experimental results show that our technique is better in terms of BER and throughput compared to the existing technique.
