Interference management is an important subject in Device to Device (D2D) communication when underlying a LTE-A cellular band. By default, in LTE-A there is negligible intra-cell interference due to the orthogonality of the subcarriers but this orthogonality will be lost when D2D communication takes place under cellular users (CU). Therefore, one of the key aspects of D2D communication is the set of spectrum bands in which D2D communication takes place. Hence, in this paper we will propose two novel resource allocation (RA) schemes: the first RA scheme (cell level) mitigates the interference between D2D and CU and the second RA scheme (user level or scheduling) schedules the resources in an energy efficient way between D2D and CU. These RA schemes increase the throughput and reduce the overall energy cost per bit of the system. Afterwards, these schemes are compared with the conventional methods and the simulation results show that the proposed schemes obtain higher throughput and save significant amount of energy per bit.
