In this paper, an Integrated Radio Resource Allocation (IRRA) algorithm is proposed for enhanced uplink UTRA-FDD with fixed relay stations (RSs). It comprises three entities: Load Based Route Manager (LBRM), Base Station Resource Scheduler (BSRS), and Relay Station Load Balancer (RSLB). LBRM is responsible for the selection of user transmission routes, BSRS is for the scheduling of user transmission time and rates based on the available base station (BS) capacity, and RSLB is for the fine-tuning of user resource assignments (e.g. assigned rates) so as to prevent the overloading of RSs. The three entities operate periodically, synchronously, and with coordinated interactions. By system level simulations, the proposed algorithm is evaluated and compared with two other cases: 1) non-relaying, 2) relaying with a benchmark approach. The results show that IRRA can ensure significant gains in terms of cell throughput.
