—In this paper we study the performance of the Heuristic Localized Gradient Algorithm (HLGA) that was designed for uplink scheduling in 3G long term evolution (LTE) systems. The performance of the algorithm is examined when dynamic traffic models are assumed. With dynamic traffic, users will have different buffer occupancies. The amount of resources granted(More)
The protected-subframe (PSF) structure is one of the methods for downlink inter-cell interference coordination (ICIC) utilized in heterogenous networks and is featured in Rel-10 of the technical specification for 3GPP's E-UTRAN. Static configuration of PSF has proven to increase performance but the dynamic configuration is yet to be examined. In this paper,(More)
In this paper, we study the strategic coexistence of macro and pico cells and investigate a utility based resource allocation technique for heterogeneous networks. Aiming at finding an objective driven allocation of resources, we focus on time domain inter-cell interference coordination (ICIC) techniques. Macro and pico cells optimally select their almost(More)
Smart grid introduces a wealth of promising applications for upcoming fifth-generation mobile networks (5G), enabling households and utility companies to establish a two-way digital communications dialogue, which can benefit both of them. The utility can monitor real-time consumption of end users and take proper measures (e.g., real-time pricing) to shape(More)
