Long Term Evolution (LTE) network offers a high throughput with low latency that makes it the best choice for Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (E-MBMS). E-MBMS transmits data to all users simultaneously using the same channel and same Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) level. Each user experiences different channel condition, so an MCS level should be selected properly to satisfy all users. Typically, MCS level is selected on the basis of users worst channel condition which results in wasting network resources. Since the E-MBMS performance directly depends on the selected MCS level, an efficient Adaptive Modulation and Coding (AMC) scheme is essentially needed. This paper introduces a new mechanism that uses the Standard Deviation (SD) of MCS level of E-MBMS user group operated on single cell mode to efficiently select its optimal MCS level. Simulation results show that the proposed mechanism increase the spectrum efficiency, throughput, and lower Packet Loss Ratio compared to the Worst User Channel Condition mechanism and Fixed Predefined MCS mechanism.
