The significant development in devices based on communication technologies requires the provision of advanced generations of communications to provide these requirements. The current hot topics are moving towards providing that meets the requirement of modern systems for industrial and technical requirements. This paper developed the GFDM system with Polar Code (PC) and interleaver, which presents the BER of GFDM at AWGN and the channel effect. Then GFDM transceiver system is built with the PC and interleaver. At each step, test and compare the BER performance. The performance computed under the effect of multipath frequency selective channel. The BER at 22 SNR of GFDM, PC-GFDM, and PC-GFDM with random interleaver is 0.1096, 0.0970, and 0.0680. The BER at 28 SNR of GFDM, PC-GFDM, and PC-GFDM with random interleaver is 0.1047, 0.0914, and 0.0607. This result presents the enhancement of using PC and interleaver. It also showed a distinct enhancement over the other methods mentioned in the researcher's survey.
