Abstract—The aim of this paper is to design sub-optimal 2D interleavers and compare the bit error rate (BER) of different kinds of 2D interleavers in different randomly generated burst error environment which are low, medium and high burst error environment. Typically, low burst error occurs in indoor environment and high burst error occurs in outdoor environment since transmission scheme in indoor use less distance and it is less likely that the line of sight (LOS) is blocked by external objects. This transmission scheme is based on 2D channel model with 2D linear block code and 2D syndrome decoder previously proposed. The proposed interleavers that we use to compare their performance are block interleavers, prime interleavers, random interleavers and set partitioning concept interleavers. From the simulation results, prime interleavers are preferred over their counterparts since they have relatively lower average (Mean) and standard deviation (SD) of BER.
