The paradigm of the design of a wireless system has changed. Since the use of the dimensioning for the “worst case”, which means to design the system to work on the fading margin available when the channel has its poorest behavior, the driver of the optimization has evolved to a more suitable use of the available resources for performing a reliable communication
