Executive Summary

The emergence of resource-demanding wireless services such as mobile gaming or multimedia applications motivates the introduction of advanced paradigms for resource allocation in next-generation OFDMA-based wireless networks. In this context, while existing literature mainly focused on schemes in which the uplink and downlink resources are considered independently, this paper proposes a novel subcarrier allocation approach suitable for services that have coupled UpLink/DownLink (UL/DL) quality-of-service requirements. The authors model the proposed joint uplink/downlink subcarrier allocation problem as a two-sided stable matching game and they propose a corresponding novel resource allocation algorithm.
