Joint BS Selection and Subcarrier Assignment for Multicell Heterogeneous OFDM Unicasting


C. Liu, P. Wang, A. Schmeink, R. Mathar,


        In this work resource allocation is studied for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) unicasting by multiple base stations (BSs). In the considered scenario, each user is restricted to being covered by one BS, i.e., BS selection, while eachsubcarrier is assigned to at most one user, i.e., subcarrier assignment. Thus, interference does not exist among these BSs. We aim at maximizing the weighted sum of data rates subject to limited transmission power at each BS, while the minimum rates required by users are satisfied. BS selection and subcarrier assignment are considered jointly. A heuristic method is proposed. It has linear complexity in the number of users, subcarriers and BSs. Simulations demonstrate that the performance loss of the proposed method is relatively small.
