In the context of frame-based multimedia wireless transmission, a link adaptation strategy is proposed, assuming that the source decoder may accept some remaining errors at the output of the channel decoder. Based on a target mean bit error rate for erroneous frames, a minimum bit-energy-to-equivalent-noise ratio is chosen. Under this constraint, a new link adaptation criterion is proposed: the maximization of the minimum user’s information rate through dynamic spreading gain and power control, allowing to guarantee a transmission for each and every user. An analytical solution to this constrained optimization problem is proposed and its performance is studied in a Rayleigh-fading environment
