Resource Allocation for Outdoor-to-Indoor Compress-and-Forward SUDAS with Independent Relay Processing
In this paper, we consider resource allocation for an outdoor-to-indoor shared user-equipment (UE)- side distributed antenna system (SUDAS) employing multiple independently operating compress-and- forward (CF) relays which utilize both licensed and unlicensed frequency bands to enhance indoor data throughput. First, a non-convex matrix-valued resource allocation problem for maximization of the weighted sum rate is formulated. Next, the non-convex problem is simplified to obtain a low- complexity suboptimal resource allocation algorithm based on sequential quadratic programming (SQP). The proposed algorithm is shown to provide excellent performance in practical scenarios. Furthermore, the algorithm has a low channel state information (CSI) feedback requirement and can accommodate arbitrary communication bands and technologies for indoor relaying. Therefore, the proposed CF-SUDAS scheme can help achieve high outdoor-to-indoor data throughput at low complexity, a crucial requirement for next generation wireless communication systems.
