Abstract

The operation of Link Adaptation algorithms is based on channel quality estimates. It is therefore important to analyse the performance of such algorithms with link level models that properly capture the channel conditions and dynamics. Previous research [1] concluded that the use of simple link level models does not give an accurate prediction of the estimated performance of Link Adaptation algorithms. Following this previous work, this paper shows that the link level model considered for the study of Link Adaptation algorithms can also influence the decisions regarding the optimum configuration of the algorithm.
