Abstract

Millimeter-Wave (mmWave) communication in ultra-dense networks (UDNs) has been considered as a promising technology for future wireless communication systems. Exploiting the benefits of mmWave and UDNs, we introduce a new approach for jointly optimizing small-cell base station (SBS) - user (UE) association and power allocation to maximize the system energy efficiency (EE) while guaranteeing the quality of service (QoS) constraints for each UE. The SBS-UE association problem poses a new challenge since it reflects as a complex mixed-integer non-convex problem. On the other hand, the power allocation problem is in non-convexity structure, which is impossible to handle with the association problem concurrently. An alternating descent method is thus introduced to divide the primal optimization problem into two subproblems and handle one-by-one at each iteration, where the SBS-UE association problem is reformulated using the penalty approach. Then, path-following algorithms are developed to convert non-convex problem into the simple convex quadratic functions at each iteration. Numerical results are provided to demonstrate the convergence and low-complexity of our proposed schemes.
