We investigate a cooperative federated learning framework among devices for mobile edge computing, named CFLMEC, where devices co-exist in a shared spectrum with interference. Keeping in view the time-average network throughput of cooperative federated learning framework and spectrum scarcity, we focus on maximize the admission data to the edge server or the near devices, which fills the gap of communication resource allocation for devices with federated learning. In CFLMEC, devices can

With aim at maximizing throughput of devices, we propose communication resource allocation algorithms with and without sufficient sub-channels for strong reliance on edge servers (SRs) in cellular link, and interference aware communication resource allocation algorithm for less reliance on edge servers (LRs) in D2D link. Extensive simulation results demonstrate the CFLMEC can achieve the highest throughput of local devices comparing with existing works, meanwhile limiting the number of the sub-channels.
