    Fairness is a crucial aspect for resource allocation in wireless systems, particularly in the downlink of 4G Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)-based systems. Therefore, it would be interesting for network operators to have tools to manage fairness in their systems. This work describes the utility-based ß-rule, which is a flexible resource allocation framework based on utility theory that is able to control delaybased fairness in a scenario with real time services in an OFDMAbased system. Not only can this framework be designed to work as well-known classical policies found in the literature, but also as an adaptive policy, which is able to meet a desired system fairness target. System-level simulations demonstrate that the adaptive policy is able to guarantee a fairness requirement by dynamically adapting a fairness-controlling parameter in the subcarrier assignment algorithm. It also presents better results than the classical policies in terms of cell capacity and user satisfaction.

    Wireless mobile network optimization is a complex task that consists in achieving different design objectives such as spectral efficiency, energy efficiency, fairness, and quality of service. Radio resource allocation is responsible for managing the available resources in the radio access interface and, therefore, is an important tool for optimizing networks and achieving the designed objectives mentioned previously. However, in general all these network design objectives cannot be achieved at the same time by resource allocation strategies. In fact, different resource allocation strategies can be designed to maximize one objective in detriment of the other as well as to balance the objectives. In this chapter we deal with important trade-offs between contradicting objectives in modern wireless mobile networks: capacity versus fairness and capacity versus satisfaction. We present resource allocation strategies that can achieve static and adaptive performances when the previously mentioned trade-offs are considered. In order to design the resource allocation strategies we consider heuristics and utility-based solutions. System-level simulations show that the proposed techniques are powerful tools to the network operator, since they can decide in which trade-off point of the capacity-fairness or capacity-satisfaction planes they want to operate the system.

    Femtocell networks have gained momentum due to their important benefits, such as improved indoor coverage, higher areal spectral efficiency, enhanced signal quality, among others. Those benefits are only achievable if adequate deployment decisions and efficient resource allocation techniques are able to assure the seamless co-existence among Femtocell Access Points (FAPs) within the femtocell tier and between FAPs and macrocell users. In this work, we study the frequency planning problem on the femtocell tier deployed on a closed access mode and using a dedicated spectrum. A novel radio resource allocation technique that performs a mid/long-term requency planning for the FAPs in the femtocell tier is proposed. It is concluded in this paper that the Dynamic Frequency Planning (DFP) algorithm based on the Branch and Bound technique is able to find the optimal frequency planning according to any desired criterion and that the proposed algorithm is suitable for implementation in a distributed 4G femtocell network regarding signaling overhead and latency aspects.

    The use of opportunistic radio resource allocation techniques in order to efficiently manage the resources generates a low fairness among the users in a cellular system due to uneven Quality of Service (QoS) distribution. Some classic rate adaptive policies tried to tackle this problem for OFDMA systems by proposing solutions to maximize capacity, maximize fairness, or find a static trade-off between these two objectives. This work generalizes these classic policies and propose a dynamic fairness/rate adaptive technique based on dynamic sub-carrier assignment and equal power allocation that considers a new fairness constraint in the optimization problem. By means of extensive system-level simulations, it is demonstrated that the proposed technique is able to provide an instantaneous (short-term) fairness control, which provides to the network operator the flexibility to operate on any desired trade-off point.

    This deliverable provides the final report with the summary of the activities carried out in NEWCOM++ WPR9, with a particular focus on those obtained during the last year. They address on the one hand RRM and JRRM strategies in heterogeneous scenarios and, on the other hand, spectrum management and opportunistic spectrum access to achieve an efficient spectrum usage. Main outcomes of the workpackage as well as integration indicators are also summarised.
