Executive Summary

Power-efficient scheduling and resource allocation are critical tasks for wireless sensor networks as well as commercial and tactical radios relying on IEEE access standards for power-limited communications. Tailored for such applications, this paper formulates and solves analytically novel convex optimization problems offering globally optimal user scheduling, as well as rate and power allocation for Time-Division Multiple Access (TDMA) in time-division-duplex or frequency-division-duplex operation. Through a limited-rate feedback link the access point provides Quantized Channel State Information to the transmitters (Q-CSIT) based on which users adapt their modulation and code choices to the intended fading channel.
