In order to mitigate inter-cell interference and cope with network, traffic, and channel fluctuations in space and time, Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) based cellular networks should be equipped with dynamic frequency and power allocation algorithms. Although dynamic frequency and power allocation has been well studied separately, very few results have been reported on dynamic joint frequency and power allocation. In this paper, we propose a dynamic frequency and power allocation algorithm for the DownLink (DL) of OFDMA-based cellular networks, where frequency resources are allocated to cells by a central broker to minimize long-term cell-edge inter-cell interference. Moreover, each cell independently assigns its available frequency resources and power to users in a way that its total DL transmission power is minimized while meeting the throughput demands of its users. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm provides significant improvements in network outage performance, capacity, and throughput as compared with existing schemes.
