Abstract

In this paper the objective is to enhance the spectral efficiency using combinations of transmit antenna selection with Linear Dispersion Code Selection. Both bit error rate minimization and throughput maximization criteria are here examined. The performance of the proposed spatial link adaptation scheme is evaluated under low mobility environments concluding that in case of linear receivers the transmit antenna code selection scheme with the combination of adaptive modulation and coding achieves a noticeable SNR gain (up to 3dB) in a large SNR margin (SNR from 6 to 18dB), which could be considered as a potent technique to achieve a smooth transition between diversity and multiplexing in order to maximize the overall system throughput.
