We study the problem of admission control and resource (subcarriers, power and bit-loading) allocation in a heterogeneous OFDMA wireless network serving both QoS-constrained high-priority users and best-effort users. By clustering subcarriers, efficient algorithms for cluster and power allocation have been proposed. Our strategy maximizes the total network utility of the best-effort users while satisfying the QoS request for maximum number of high-priority users. We approximate best-effort user utility function as a piece-wise linear function and propose a linear programming based cluster allocation algorithm. The feasibility of the resource allocation problem depends on the number of HP users in the network. Since a large number of demanding HP users would render the resource allocation problem infeasible, a joint admission control and resource allocation scheme could be an efficient way of tackling both problems with less overhead. By incorporating admission control, we propose an efficient and optimal joint admission control and resource allocation algorithm.
