#### Sum-rate maximization of OFDMA femtocell networks that incorporates the QoS of macro mobile stations

##### Chunguo Li

This paper proposes a power allocation scheme with co-channel allocation for a femto base station (BS) that maximizes the sum-rate of its own femto mobile stations (MSs) with a constraint that limits the degradation of quality of service (QoS) of macro MSs. We have found a closed-form solution for the upper limit on the transmission power of each sub-channel that satisfies the constraint in a probabilistic sense. The proposed scheme is practical since it uses only the information easily obtained by the femto BS. Moreover, our scheme meets the constraint with minimal degradation compared to the optimal sum-rate of the femto MSs achieved without the constraint.
