In future packet based wireless communication systems, transmission in the downlink will often dominate the traffic load. High bit-rate applications like WWW-browsing, file transfer, and full motion video will impose strong requirements on the system capacity. An obstacle in this context is the time-variability of the channel: For mobile users, frequently occurring fading dips will cause unnecessary and capacity degrading retransmissions. To achieve a high throughput also over fading channels… CONTINUE READING
