In this paper, for packet transmission over flat fading channel in single-inputsingle-output system, we consider the power control problem in a cross-layer design where adaptive modulation is adopted at physical layer to improve spectral efficiency and the queues are modeled as of finite length at data link layer. The goal is to identify the optimal queuingaware power allocation algorithm to minimize the overall system packet error rate under the constraint of long-term transmit power. One… CONTINUE READING
