Abstract

Link Adaptation is an adaptive radio link technique that selects a transport mode, from a set of predefined modes of varying robustness, depending on the channel quality conditions and dynamics. It is therefore very important, when analysing the performance and operation of Link Adaptation, to properly capture such conditions and dynamics. In this context, this paper investigates the effect that different link-to-system level interfaces have on the study of Link Adaptation, in particular on its throughput performance and associated signalling cost.
