In this paper, the throughput of an adaptive multiuser SISO-OFDMA/FDD system with channel quality information (CQI) signalled digitized over a feedback channel to the transmitter is investigated, where the instantaneous signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the different subcarriers is used as CQI to exploit multi-user diversity using adaptive subcarrier allocation. The CQI available at the transmitter is assumed to be imperfect due to estimation errors and quantization at the receiver side, time delay and feedback errors. In this paper, a closed form expression of the average throughput of an adaptive multi-user OFDMA system using imperfect CQI and uncoded M-QAM modulation is derived. Furthermore, a closed form expression of the average throughput of an OFDMA system exploiting frequency diversity, which does not require CQI at the transmitter, is presented. Both throughput performances are compared in order to identify the optimal transmission strategy depending on the grade of CQI imperfectness.
