Joint Resource Block Assignment and Power Allocation Problem for Rate Maximization With QoS Guarantees in Multiservice Wireless Systems
We formulate the resource and power assignment problem of maximizing the spectral efficiency of a wireless system subject to user satisfaction constraints in the multiservice scenario. We show that although this optimization problem is nonlinear, it can be converted to an integer linear program. In this way, standard techniques can be used to obtain the optimal solution. Motivated by the high computational complexity of the optimal solution, we propose a fast suboptimal algorithm. Simulation results show that our proposal achieves near-optimal performance in low and medium loads with a much lower computational complexity compared with the algorithm used to obtain the optimal solution. Therefore, our proposed algorithm achieves a good tradeoff between performance and computational complexity. We also show that the addition of adaptive power allocation renders significant performance gains in the considered
