Dynamic Resource Allocation With Threshold in OFDMA-Based Relay Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors investigate resource allocation issue in OFDMA-based decode-and-forward cooperative networks and propose joint subcarrier and power allocation schemes. The optimal solution of this combinable allocation has high computational complexity, so they divide their solution into two steps. The first step is to distribute subcarriers to relays and destination under the assumption of equal power distribution. Here, they propose Proportional Allocation (PA) strategy to achieve tradeoff between total throughput and fairness. To further improve the system performance, they introduce threshold into PA strategy, named Proportional Allocation with Threshold (PA-T), where subcarriers with bad performance are prevented from transmitting.
