The Long-Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) system are expected to provide high speed and high quality services, which are supported by emerging technologies such as Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) transmission and reception. Dynamic resource allocation plays a vital role in LTE-A design and planning, which is investigated in this thesis. In addition, Received Signal Strength (RSS) based positioning is also investigated in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based wireless networks, which is based on an industry project. In the first contribution, a physical resource blocks (PRB) allocation scheme with fuzzy logic based user selection is proposed. This work considers three parameters and exploit a fuzzy logic (FL) based criterion to categorize users. As a result, it enhances accuracy of user classification. This work improves system capacity by a ranking based PRBs allocation schemes. Simulation results show that proposed fuzzy logic based user selection scheme improves performance for CoMP users. Proposed ranking based greedy allocation algorithm cut complexity in half but maintain same performance. In the second contribution, a two-layer proportional-fair (PF) user scheduling scheme is proposed. This work focused on fairness between CoMP and Non-CoMP users instead of balancing fairness in each user categories. Proposed scheme jointly optimizes fairness and system capacity over both CoMP and Non-CoMP users. Simulation results show that proposed algorithm significantly improves fairness between CoMP and Non-CoMP users. In the last contribution, RSS measurement method in LTE system is analyzed and a realizable RSS measurement method is proposed to fight against multipath effect. Simulation results shows that proposed method significantly reduced measurement error caused by multipath. In RSS based positioning area, this is the first work that consider exploiting LTE’s own signal strength measurement mechanism to enhance accuracy of positioning. Furthermore, the proposed method can be deployed in modern LTE system with limited cost.
