Executive Summary

This paper addresses the use of adaptive modulation in progressive image transmission with multiple description coding in conjunction with an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system. Specifically, two adaptive systems are considered: variable rate with fixed power, and variable rate with variable power. An algorithm is proposed to allocate power and constellation size at each subchannel by maximizing the throughput. Simulation results confirm that cross-layer optimization with adaptive modulation enhances system performance. The growing demand for wireless multimedia services requires reliable and high-rate data communications over a wireless channel. Ideally, wireless multimedia systems have to be adaptive based on the channel conditions.
