Modified PSO Based Channel Allocation Scheme for Interference Management in 5G Wireless Mesh Networks
Journal of Telecommunications and Information Technology
Efficient channel management is a challenge that next-generation wireless networks need to meet in order to satisfy increasing bandwidth demand and transmission rate requirements. Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is one of such efficient channel allocation methods used in 5G backhaul wireless mesh networks. In this paper, we propose a power demand-based channel allocation method for 5G backhaul wireless mesh networks by employing NOMA and considering traffic demands in small cells, thereby
... improving channel utility. In this scheme, we work with physical layer transmission. The foremost aim is to mutually optimize the uplink/downlink NOMA channel assignment in order to increase user fairness. The approach concerned may be divided into two steps. First, initial channel allocation is performed by employing the traveling salesman problem (TSP), due to its similarity to many-to-many double-side user-channel allocation. Second, the modified particle swarm optimization (PSO) method is applied for allocation updates, by introducing a decreasing coefficient which may have the form of a standard stochastic estimate algorithm. To enhance exploration capacity of modified the PSO, a random velocity is included to optimize the convergence rate and exploration behavior. The performance of the designed scheme is estimated through simulation, taking into account such parameters as throughput, spectral efficiency, sum-rate, outage probability, signalto-interference plus noise ratio (SINR), and fairness. The proposed scheme maximizes network capacity and improves fairness between the individual stations. Experimental results show that the proposed technique performs better than existing solutions.
