Approaches and Algorithms for Resource Management in OFDMA Access Mode: Application to Mobile Networks of New Generation

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 915)


The increased need for speed and mobility is the cause of the rapid evolution of mobile radio systems during the last decade. In mobile radio communication systems for broadband (e.g. UMTS, HSDPA, WiMax, LTE, … etc.), an intense research activity on optimization and radio resource management techniques (RRM Radio Resource Management) is conducted. Management and resource optimization are two themes dealt with separately. This study achieves two goals: achieving an overview of different methods and approaches for allocation of radio resources and focus on the optimization algorithms dedicated to the allocation of resources in the single cell case by deploying one of the most promising access technologies in terms of speed called OFDMA.
