Abstract

In this paper, we propose a system that adopts the independent MCS (modulation and coding scheme) level for each layer in the AMC (adaptive modulation and coding) scheme combined with the V-BLAST (vertical Bell lab layered space time) system. From the simulation results, we observe that since the independent MCS level case adapts modulation and coding rate for maximum throughput to each channel condition in separate layers, the combined AMC-V-BLAST system with the independent MCS level selection results in improved throughput compared to the combined AMC-V-BLAST system with the common MCS level selection and the conventional AMC system based on the 1x EV-DO standard. Especially, the combined AMC-V-BLAST system with the independent MCS level achieves a gain of 700kbps in 7-9dB SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) range.
