System capacity of a wireless system can be improved greatly by using variable rate transmission. Assuming a low-rate and wide-coverage signaling-only wireless network, in this paper we evaluate, analytically and numerically, the extent of this improvement for various schemes with variable transmission rates. We considered log-normal shadowing as well as the effect of Rayleigh fading. Simulation results show close proximity with the analytical predictions.
