LTE (Long-Term Evolution) advanced has brought revolution in the field of wireless communication technology by providing high data rates of up to 1Gbps. There is a need of increased data rates these days that may support the delivery of richer mobile multimedia contents to the end users. Rate adaptation is one of the key enabling technology in the success of LTE advanced that has cited attraction of academia and research communities in recent years. Rate adaptation is the determination of the optimal data transmission rate most suitable for current prevailing wireless channel conditions.
