Abstract

Heterogeneous networks (HetNets) composed of macrocells and small cells are expected to improve the transmission performance of users significantly. In this paper, a joint bandwidth and power allocation scheme is proposed for femto base stations (FBSs) in HetNets. By taking into account bandwidth requirements of femto user equipments and bandwidth resource characteristics of the network, a bankruptcy game based bandwidth resource scheme is proposed for the FBSs, based on which a multi-objective optimization based power allocation scheme is proposed in which the energy efficiency optimization problem of each FBS is formulated respectively and is solved via ideal point method and genetic algorithm. Simulation results demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed scheme.
