Power and rate adaptation for MQAM/OFDM systems under fast fading channels
In this paper the effect of power and rate adaptation on the spectral efficiency of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems using M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (MQAM) is investigated in the presence of the fast fading channels under power and instantaneous bit error rate (BER) constraints. A lower bound on the maximum spectral efficiency of adaptive OFDM/MQAM systems is obtained together with a closed-form expression for the average spectral efficiency of adaptive OFDM systems. Theoretical and numerical results show that the adaptive MQAM/OFDM systems under fast fading channel have substantial gain in spectral efficiency over the non-adaptive counterparts.
