To meet the requirements of future wireless mobile communication which aims to increase the data rates, coverage and reliability while reducing energy consumption and latency, and also deal with the explosive mobile traffic growth which imposes high demands on backhaul for massive content delivery, developing green communication and reducing the backhaul requirements have become two significant trends. One of the promising techniques to provide green communication is wireless power transfer (WPT) which facilitates energy-efficient architectures, e.g. simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT). Edge caching, on the other side, brings content closer to the users by storing popular content in caches installed at the network edge to reduce peak-time traffic, backhaul cost and latency. In this thesis, we focus on the resource allocation technology for emerging network architectures, i.e. the SWIPT-enabled multiple-antenna systems and cache-enabled cellular systems, to tackle the challenges of limited resources such as insufficient energy supply and backhaul capacity. We start with the joint design of beamforming and power transfer ratios for SWIPT in MISO broadcast channels and MIMO relay systems, respectively, aiming for maximizing the energy efficiency subject to both the Quality of Service (QoS) constraints and energy harvesting constraints. Then move to the content placement optimization for cache-enabled heterogeneous small cell networks so as to minimize the backhaul requirements. In particular, we enable multicast content delivery and cooperative content sharing utilizing maximum distance separable (MDS) codes to provide further caching gains. Both analysis and simulation results are provided throughout the thesis to demonstrate the benefits of the proposed algorithms over the state-of-the-art methods.
