Abstract

Millimeter-wave (mm-wave) communication is a promising technology for supporting extremely high data rates in the next generation wireless networks. Mm-wave signals experience high path loss and directional transmission is required to compensate the severe channel attenuation. The special characteristics of the mm-wave propagation arise opportunities as well as challenges for the network resource allocation problems. In this paper, a fair user association, beamwidth selection and power allocation problem for indoor mm-wave networks is studied. The objective of the optimization problem is to maximize the minimum user throughput to provide a fair resource distribution among the users. In our model, we take into account the unique mm-wave communications features, namely beam alignment procedure and directional transmission. Simulation results confirm the superior performance of the proposed solution compared to the existing approaches.
