In this paper, the authors present three models of Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) modem operating at data rate of 16.8kb/s to be transmitted over 32kb/s Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation (ADPCM) channel. These modems operate at symbol rates of 2400, 2800, and 3360 baud with associated number of bits per symbol of 7, 6, and 5 respectively. The performance of ADPCM is studied considering these modems with different constellations. The simulation results show that the performance of ADPCM degrades as the symbol rate decreases or number of bits per symbol increases. Also, the performance with circular constellation is better than rectangular one.
