Adaptive Resource Allocation for OFDMA With Mixed Frame Structure

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper introduces a reconfigurable mixed frame structure and a resource allocation algorithm for OFDMA systems supporting both the band-AMC and diversity modes in the frame. To reduce the total feedback without significant performance loss, the authors assign a user to the diversity sub-channel when the band-AMC mode has no gain over the diversity mode based on the frequency selectivity of the user. After user selection, they apply joint power and rate allocation to exploit the asymmetry in required transmit power of the band-AMC mode and the diversity mode. The results reveal that the mixed frame with simple user classification provides a performance comparable to the frame with band-AMC mode only at a much reduced feedback.
