For the problem of allocating radio resources in the downlink of a CDMA network studied in [1], the modulation and coding schemes, numbers of multicodes, and transmit powers used for all mobile stations (MS's) are jointly chosen so as to maximize the total transmission bit rate during each scheduling interval, subject to certain constraints. The approach employs discrete mathematical programming, which is potentially complex, and analytical solutions are not available. In this paper, sub-optimal approaches are examined. In particular, analytical expressions are derived for optimal resource allocation involving a single MS. Based on the single-MS solution, a sub-optimal, sequential optimization procedure for multiple MS's is presented. Numerical results show that when the order for allocating resources to MS's is judiciously chosen based on the MS channel conditions and/or traffic loads, the sequential solution is an attractive alternative to the more complex joint optimization. This is especially true when radio resources are scarce.
