  abstract  = {The motivation for adaptive modulation and coding is
to adjust the method of transmission to ensure that the maximum
efficiency is achieved over the link at all times. The receiver
estimates the channel quality and reports it back to the transmitter.
The transmitter then maps the reported quality into a link mode. This
mapping however, is not a one-to-one mapping. In this paper we
investigate a method for selecting the proper modulation scheme.
This method can dynamically adapt the mapping of the Signal-to-
Noise Ratio (SNR) into a link mode. It enables the use of the right
modulation scheme irrespective of changes in the channel conditions
by incorporating errors in the received data. We propose a Markov
model for this method, and use it to derive the average switching
thresholds and the average throughput. We show that the average
throughput of this method outperforms the conventional threshold
method.},
