When adaptive modulation is used to counter
short-term fading in mobile radio channels,
signaling delays create problems with
outdated channel state information.
The use of channel power prediction will improve the performance
of the link adaptation.
It is then of interest to take the quality of these predictions
into account explicitly when designing the adaptive
modulation scheme. We study the optimum design
of an adaptive modulation scheme based on
uncoded M-QAM modulation assisted by
channel prediction for the flat Rayleigh fading channel.
The data rate, and in some variants the transmit power,
are adapted to maximize the spectral efficiency subject to
average power and bit error rate constraints.
The key issues studied here are how a known prediction error
variance will affect the optimized transmission properties
such as the SNR boundaries that determine when to apply
different modulation rates, and to what
extent it affects the spectral efficiency.
This investigation is performed by analytical optimization
of the link adaptation, using the statistical properties of a
particular but efficient channel power predictor.
Optimum solutions for the rate and transmit power
are derived based on the predicted SNR and the
predicted error variance.
