ABSTRACT Readiness in deployment and flexibility in radio resource configuration are the main features of future wireless communication systems. A cooperative wireless communication system (CWCS) is proposed to follow the same principle, aiming at improving the overall performance of a wireless system with the support of advanced beam-hopping techniques. In this article, we propose a multiloop radio resource management mechanism for the CWCS based on the organized beam-hopping (OBH) technique. The proposed RRM mechanism enhances the robustness of the CWCS, based on the OBH technique working with fast temporal-spatial variant traffic. The results show that the system performance can be further improved by hybrid transmission and event- driven access management techniques.

    ABSTRACT: As a new technology, inter-eNB coordination has been included in LTE-Advanced study items. Moreover, the network architecture in LTE-Advanced system is modified to take into account coordinated transmission. In our study, we explore the problem of jointly optimizing the power level and scheduling of resource blocks for LTE-Advanced network based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). We propose a distributed optimization scheme based on evolutionary potential games, and in the process of objective function modeling we employ the Lagrangian multiplier method to solve the constraint objective optimization problem. Then particle swarm optimization (PSO) method is adopted to find the optimal power allocation and scheduling for each resource block in the multi-cell framework. Numerical results prove that proposed algorithm notably improves the overall throughput, while user fairness is guaranteed. Importantly, additional computation and communication cost introduced by cross-layer optimization is also evaluated.

    ABSTRACT: Relay selection schemes for cooperative communications to achieve full cooperative diversity gains while maintaining spectral and energy efficiency have been extensively studied in a recent research. These schemes select only the best relay from multiple relaying candidates to cooperate with a communication link. In the present paper, we reviewed recently proposed cooperative communication protocols that integrate with relay selection mechanisms. The key design issues for relay selection mechanisms, for example, relaying candidate selection, optimal relay assignment, and cooperative transmission, were identified. We further discussed the challenges of optimal relay assignment in multi-hop wireless sensor networks and presented the potential applications of cooperative communications with a relay selection in such networks. Future research directions were outlined, for example, the issues of service differentiation and system fairness in cooperative communication systems and the joint use of game theory and adaptive learning techniques in relaying candidate selection and optimal-relay assignment mechanisms for efficient allocation of network resources.

    ABSTRACT: This article provides an overview of contemporary and forward looking inter-cell interference coordination techniques for 4G OFDM systems with a specific emphasis on implementations for LTE. Viable approaches include the use of power control, opportunistic spectrum access, intra and inter-base station interference cancellation, adaptive fractional frequency reuse, spatial antenna techniques such as MIMO and SDMA, and adaptive beamforming, as well as recent innovations in decoding algorithms. The applicability, complexity, and performance gains possible with each of these techniques based on simulations and empirical measurements will be highlighted for specific cellular topologies relevant to LTE macro, pico, and femto deployments for both standalone and overlay networks.
