The resource allocation optimization for multicast service in orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) systems is an important research topic. It is known that in traditional multicast schemes the rate in each multicast group is severely limited by the user who has the minimum channel gain (MCG) on each subchannel. To counteract this effect, in this paper, we introduce the multiple description coding (MDC) into the multiple-group multicast service optimization for the downlink OFDMA, and study the weighted sum rate (WSR) maximization methods under various system constraints and assuming discrete-rate modulation. Simulation results show that the proposed method provides a significant performance enhancement than the MCG scheme and an MDC-based near-optimal iterative bit loading (IBL) approach. Besides this, our method converges very fast and enjoys a low complexity that is linear in the numbers of users, subchannels, and modulation bit levels.
