Integrated Services in Wireless Networks call for a physical layer which can support multirate transmissions and guarantee symbol recovery at the receiver. Multirate transmissions are necessary for data applications with diverse needs in throughput/delay, whereas symbol recovery leads to Quality of Service guarantees in terms of bit error rate. In this work, we develop a multiuser physical layer framework, which can be used in a wireless integrated services architecture. Capitalizing on space-time coding and block transmissions, we show how space-time transmit antenna diversity can provide transmission rates of arbitrarily fine resolution while guaranteeing symbol recovery irrespective of the FIR wireless channel.
