Abstract

Light-fidelity (LiFi) relies on visible light communication to provide multiuser access in a small cell. For higher throughput, this paper studies the resource allocation problem for an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing access scheme for LiFi downlink transmissions and presents a joint design of the bias level, power and subcarrier allocation. Decomposing the original optimization into subproblems, we first develop an efficient algorithm for the bias optimization, along with its performance analysis in terms of convergence properties and the global optimality. We then propose several power and subcarrier allocation strategies, including an optimal algorithm and a near-optimal simplified method, to satisfy different complexity and accuracy requirements. Finally, we present two algorithms to jointly optimize the bias, power, and subcarrier, and analyze the convergence properties in terms of both the objective and the solution. Comprehensive simulation results under practical LiFi system setups illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms.
