Resource allocation for user-relay assisted MISO-OFDMA networks
MetadataShow full item record
The next generation cellular networks request higher capacity and coverage that user-relay assisted Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) networks are costeffective solutions to meet these demands. These networks can be enriched with multiple antennas in order to obtain a diversity gain to combat signal fading and to achieve more capacity gain without increasing the bandwidth or transmit power. However, radio resource management (RRM) such as relay selection and resource allocation (RA) is important in such a multi-user, multirelay and multi-antenna environment to fully take advantage of multiple-input single-output (MISO)-OFDMA based user-relay assisted cellular networks. Thus, we propose a RA algorithm for these networks to reveal the benefits of the combination of userrelaying and multiple antennas technologies and compare the proposed scheme with existing schemes in terms of percentage of satisfied users and cell-edge users' data rate.
