Summary: 
This paper proposes an adaptive zone selection (AZS) scheme with adaptive modulation for wireless packet transmission systems to achieve high throughput and low delay performances even under non-uniform traffic conditions. In the proposed system, based on the measurement of the propagation path characteristics to each access point (AP) as well as broadcasted blocking probability information from each AP, a terminal autonomously selects an AP and modulation parameters that give the minimum transmission failure probability determined by both the call blocking rate due to lack of radio resource and packet error rate due to severe channel conditions. Computer simulation confirms that the proposed scheme greatly improves throughput and delay performances especially under non-uniform traffic conditions.
