Fourth Generation Networks will invariably adopt MIMO-OFDMA techniques, in order to cope with increased data rate demands and improved Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. OFDMA is a popular multiple access candidate, since it facilitates multi-user diversity by enabling two dimensional multiple access, in time and frequency domains. Random Beamforming enables exploitation of spatial multi-user diversity and spatial capacity multiplexing gain. Layered Random Beamforming is able to achieve further multiple access benefits by enabling different users to be scheduled on different spatial layers of the same time-frequency resource. This paper examines the QoS performance of SU-MIMO and MU-MIMO precoding schemes for a VoIP system under a realistic traffic and channel environment. A novel Link Adaptation algorithm operating under PER constraints for delay sensitive VoIP traffic that promises increased data rates, flexibility and improved QoS is proposed and examined in this paper.
