This paper presents a downlink performance analysis of a link adaptation (LA) algorithm applied to a MIMO-OFDM physical layer (PHY) which is a popular candidate for future generation cellular communication systems. The new LA algorithm attempts to maximize throughput and adaptation between various modulation and coding schemes in combination with both space-time block codes (STBC) and spatial multiplexing (SM) is based on knowledge of SNR and H matrix determinant; the parameters which are found… CONTINUE READING
