In next generation wireless networks, high data rates under strict quality of service (QoS) constraints call for flexible radio interfaces capable of adapting their configuration on the fly to the time-varying operating environment. Motivated by this need, this paper first derives a simple link performance prediction model for bit interleaved coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (BIC-OFDM) systems using incremental redundancy (IR) hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) mechanisms. Then, an adaptive HARQ strategy is formulated whose aim is maximizing the goodput (GP) metric, i.e., the number of error-free information bits delivered to the user by unit of time, over the coding rate, the bit distribution and an on-off power allocation across the active subchannels. Simulation results corroborate the GP performance gains of the proposed approach compared with non-adaptive transmissions, while keeping the computational complexity at affordable levels.
