Distributed Optimal Rate Assignments for CDMA-Based Wireless Networks


Jennifer Price, Tara Javidi



Increased demand for wireless broadband data services has led to a reexamination of system design, particularly with respect to optimal resource allocation. In this paper, we examine this optimal resource allocation as a rate assignment problem in terms of an optimization framework. We then develop a distributed algorithm for solving this problem, and examine its behavior under time-varying conditions. Finally, we propose modifications to this algorithm to mitigate its undesirable dynamic behaviors.
