This paper investigates the performance of massive MIMO systems under the effect of multipath propagation environment. Linear Minimum Mean Squared Error (MMSE) is considered to assess the performance of BPBK/OFDM based uplink massive MIMO transmission. Bit Error Rate (BER) and channel capacity in Non Line Of Site (NLOS) multipath fading environment are presented. The results show a correlation between the number of antennas and the performance of the system.
