Title: Hierarchical modulation reverse link interface node

Abstract: A wireless communication device transmits a hierarchically modulated reverse link (RL) WWAN signal comprising a lower modulation order component and a higher modulation order component. An interface node receives and demodulates the hierarchical modulated signal to recover the extended data sent with the higher modulation order component. The interface node sends extended data to a base station that is unable to recover the higher modulation order component from the UE device.
