This article discusses link adaptation and channel-state information reporting in LTE/LTE-Advanced systems and uses an implementation of LTE Downlink using Synopsys SPW to demonstrate the features of these techniques and the possible performance gains that can be achieved by the base station taking into account one or more of the recommendations communicated to it by the mobile terminal.

LTE and WiMAX are key contenders for next generation mobile phone system. Both standards are excellent examples to highlight the huge complexity involved in modern communication algorithms. This increasing complexity is the trigger for new design methodologies and tools.
This white paper provides a detailed analysis on the elements that determine algorithm design and verification efficiency for LTE and WiMAX communications systems. The concept of efficiency is discussed for modeling, simulation, reuse, and verification. Different methodologies and simulation solutions are then compared, providing the reader with specific algorithm design requirements.
