The aim of this paper is to provide a framework for cross-layer management of packet-data transmissions in MIMO systems employing orthogonal space-time block coding (STBC) over Nakagami fading channels. The framework integrates physical layer adaptive modulation and link layer truncated automatic repeat request (T-ARQ), in an attempt to maximize the system's spectral efficiency under prescribed quality of service requirements such as delay and error rate constraints. The performance of the… CONTINUE READING
