Joint subcarrier pairing and resource allocation for adaptive hybrid relay protocol in OFDM systems

Sileh, Ibrahim Khalil and Xiang, Wei and Maxwell, Andrew (2013) Joint subcarrier pairing and resource allocation for adaptive hybrid relay protocol in OFDM systems. In: 24th IEEE International Symposium on Personal Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC 2013), 8-11 Sep 2013 , London, United Kingdom.


Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) has been adopted as a promising technique to mitigate multi-path fading and provides high spectral efficiency in broadband communications. In this paper, we investigate resource allocation and sub-carrier permutation in OFDM-based hybrid relay protocol over frequency-selective channels. Selective multicarrier-adaptive hybrid relay protocol (MC-AHRP), involves the sub-carrier utilizing an amplify-and-forward (AF) scheme when the instantaneous signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is larger than threshold value and an adaptive decode-and-forward (ADF) scheme when the instantaneous SNR is less than threshold value. The proposed protocol exploits the benefits of adaptive hybrid relay protocol, OFDM, resource allocation, and sub-carrier permutation to provide a substantial enhancement in the system performance. The simulation results show that when the protocol performs resource allocation (RA) and sub-carrier permutation (SP) can provide an excellent improvement in the capacity of the system. It also demonstrate that the proposed protocol can achieve a significant improvement in throughput compared with conventional protocols.
