We propose a novel utility optimization algorithm for wireless networks modeled by systems of nonlinear equations based on the load at the base stations. Unlike previous studies, the algorithm solves a max–min utility optimization problem over the joint space of network load, transmit power, and rates. In more detail, our first main contribution is to show that, in the optimum, users operate at the same rate, base stations are fully loaded, and at least one base station transmits at the maximum… CONTINUE READING
