High spectral efficiency is considered as one of the most significant requirements that should be achieved in LTE-Advanced standard in order to fulfil the requirements of IMT-Advanced technology. Carrier Aggregation (CA) and Adaptive Modulation and Coding (AMC) techniques are considered as two potential techniques that can provide high spectral efficiency in wireless communication systems. In this paper, CA technique employing AMC scheme will be implemented to further enhance spectral… CONTINUE READING
