Optimal Power Allocation With Statistical QoS Provisioning for D2D and Cellular Communications Over Underlaying Wireless Networks Academic Article uri icon


  • 2015 IEEE. By enabling two adjacent mobile devices to establish a direct link, device-to-device (D2D) communication can increase the system throughput over underlaying wireless networks, where D2D and cellular communications coexist to share the same radio resource. Traditional D2D schemes mainly focus on maximizing the system throughput without taking into account the quality-ofservice (QoS) provisioning. To overcome this problem, we develop a framework to investigate the impact of delay-QoS requirement on the performance of D2D and cellular communications in underlaying wireless networks. Then, we propose the optimal power allocation schemes with statistical QoS provisioning for the following two channel modes: 1). co-channel mode based underlaying wireless networks where D2D devices and cellular devices share the same frequency-time resource; 2). orthogonal-channel mode based underlaying wireless networks where the frequency-time resource is partitioned into two parts for D2D devices and cellular devices, respectively. Applying our proposed optimal power allocations into D2D based underlaying wireless networks, we obtain the maximum network throughput subject to a given delay-QoS constraint for above-mentioned two underlaying wireless network modes, respectively. Also conducted is a set of numerical and simulation results to evaluate our proposed QoS-driven power allocation schemes under different delay-QoS requirements.
