Index Policies for Resource Allocation in Wireless Networks

  title={Index Policies for Resource Allocation in Wireless Networks},
  author={Nomesh Bolia and Vidyadhar Kulkarni},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology},
We consider the problem of resource allocation for data transfer between the base station and the users within a cell of a wireless telecommunication network with infinite data queues for each user. The aim is to study the tradeoff between the conflicting objectives of maximizing the system throughput and the quality of service (QoS) to an individual user. Using a policy improvement approach based on Markov decision processes, we develop an intuitive and easy-to-implement index policy. We also… CONTINUE READING
