We consider forward-link power allocation in a wireless network with stochastically varying data requests. We assume a user’s service preferences are specified via a utility function that depends on the received data rate. The allocation of power across users is studied, where this allocation may depend on both a user’s channel and utility. The objective is to maximize the time-averaged utility rate subject to a stochastic total power constraint at the transmitter. For a large, heavily loaded… CONTINUE READING
