Abstract
Relay aided cellular network promises numbers
of attractive performances such as cell-edge throughput improvement,
fairness enhancement, higher throughput and etc,
which is considered in Long-Term-Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A)
standard. However, the promised advantages can only be achieved
under proper co-channel interference control such as employing
Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR). To overcome the drawback
of FFR, we propose a location-aided round robin scheduling
algorithm in this paper, which allows the several carefully chosen
frequencies to be reused among donor eNodeBs and relay nodes,
so as to satisfy the fluctuation of traffic demand.
