In this contribution, the problem of download time minimization, by considering channel state, is solved for application scenario where the downlink channel is slotted and continuous-state, while the resulting conveyed throughput is measured by any desired increasing concave rate-function. Specifically, the optimal energy-allocation policy minimizing the download-time is found and its performance is compared against that of a basic On-Off type heuristic scheduler for some Rayleigh-faded multi-antenna downloading systems of practical interest. © 2006 IEEE.
