## Abstract

We propose a new analytical approach to evaluate

the average packet error rate (PER) of a conventional packet

transmission system over a quasi static fading channel, by

presenting an integral inequality lemma. The basic idea of the

approach is that, given the PER for the AWGN channel as a

function of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), the average PER over

Rayleigh fading channel can be generally upper bounded by a

quite simple inequality, i.e.,1-¿¿¿(-¿0/¿), for both coded and

uncoded schemes, where ¿0, defined by an integral expression,

corresponds exactly to the inversion of coding gain; and this

bound is tight in the high SNR region or for long packet systems.

We further apply the integral inequality to ext
