Queue-aware resource allocation for OFDMA-based mobile relay enhanced networks
MetadataShow full item record
Mobile relay assisted OFDMA networks that are considered as a good candidate in future deployment scenarios for coverage extension and lower deployment costs are promising solutions for provision of ubiquitous high-data-rate services in wide coverage areas. However, it is required to design efficient resource allocation algorithms to exploit these opportunities. Thus, this paper designs an heuristic resource allocation algorithm based on the queue and channel state information of the users for mobile relay enhanced OFDMA networks. The proposed queue aware algorithm is appropriate for the realistic scenarios and use system resources efficiently. Numerical results revealed that the mobile-relay enhanced scheme improves coverage and assisting users having unfavorable channel conditions such as cell-edge users by increasing the data rate compared to existing fixed-relay enhanced and non-relaying schemes. © VDE Verlag GMBH.
