Joint power-subcarrier-time resource allocation is imperative for wireless mesh networks due to the necessity of packet scheduling for quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning, multi-channel communications, and opportunistic power allocation. In this work, we propose an efficient intra-cluster packet-level resource allocation approach. Our approach takes power allocation, subcarrier allocation, packet scheduling, and QoS support into account. The proposed approach combines the merits of a Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT)-driven approach and a genetic algorithm (GA)-based approach. It is shown to achieve a desired balance between time complexity and system performance. Bounds for the throughputs obtained by real-time and non-real-time traffic are also derived analytically.
