Cooperative Transmission can be used in a multicell scenario where base stations are connected to a central processing unit. This cooperation can be used to improve the fairness for users with bad channel conditions–critical users. This paper will look into using cooperative transmission alongside the orthogonal OFDM scheme to improve fairness by careful selection of critical users and a resource allocation and resource division between the two schemes. A solution for power and subcarrier allocations is provided together with a solution for the selection of the critical users. Simulation results is provided to show the fairness achieved by the proposed critical users selection method, resource allocation and the resource division method applied under the stated assumptions.
