In practice, channels in wireless communication systems are time-variable. Because of the variability of the channels in wireless systems and networks, the performance of error-control coding can be improved by adapting the rate of the code to the channel conditions. Thus, the bit-error performance of error-control coding system can be improved. In this study, an adaptive rate error control coding with concatenated Zigzag coding is investigated. The bit-error-rate performance of the adaptive rate Zigzag coding system is evaluated for channels with interference and noise.
