Abstract

In this paper, we consider the complex field network coded relay assisted communication (CFNC-RAC) channel. Although CFNC-RAC is spectrally efficient, its bit error rate performance is degraded by multi-access interference, which can be improved by appropriately allocating the user and relay powers. Since the fairness is an important factor for a practical multi-user communication system, we have proposed a rate-optimal fair power adaptation (ROFPA) technique in this work. The proposed ROFPA policy not only aims to maximize the average achievable sum-rate of CFNC-RAC under the use of the decode and forward relaying but also intends to satisfy the average rate-fairness restriction while taking the total power constraint and the network topology into account. We formulate the ROFPA as a non-convex optimization program and then derive an analytical solution for it. Extensive performance evaluation and numerical simulations validate that ROFPA method can provide significant sum-rate with considerable user fairness when compared to symbol-error-rate optimized (SER-OPT) policy proposed by Eritmen et al. (Wirel Netw, 2015. doi:10.1007/s11276-015-0924-1).
