In recent years, techniques such as multiple input multiple output (MIMO) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) have been developed and combined in MIMO-OFDM systems to provide higher data rates. In addition, the system can be optimized by setting modulation and coding adaptively according to the channel conditions. The overall system performance depends on how accurately the system obtains the channel state information (CSI) and feeds it back to the transmitter. In this paper, we propose a signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) estimation algorithm in which the preamble is known by both sides of the transceiver. Through simulations of several channel environments, we prove that our proposed algorithm is more accurate than traditional algorithms.
