Optimal resource allocation is an outstanding issue in wireless communication systems. In this work we focus on the ever challenging optimization of the tradeoff between throughput and fairness. Specifically, we propose a novel framework to analytically derive the maximum average throughput versus fairness under the assumptions that the throughput of each user i) increases if more resources are allocated to him and ii) depends on how many resources and not which resources are allocated. We achieve a general formulation of the tradeoff optimization problem and we also derive and validate a closed form solution in those scenarios where throughput linearly depends on resources, which cover several realistic cases. Besides these valuable results, the framework also lays solid basis toward a more general solution.

Abstract

Optimal resource allocation is an outstanding issue in wireless communication systems. In this work we focus on the ever challenging optimization of the tradeoff between throughput and fairness. Specifically, we propose a novel framework to analytically derive the maximum average throughput versus fairness under the assumptions that the throughput of each user i) increases if more resources are allocated to him and ii) depends on how many resources and not which resources are allocated. We achieve a general formulation of the tradeoff optimization problem and we also derive and validate a closed form solution in those scenarios where throughput linearly depends on resources, which cover several realistic cases. Besides these valuable results, the framework also lays solid basis toward a more general solution.
