Abstract: Due to the increasing demand for mobile traffic, the unlicensed band operation for LTE is proposed by mobile operators. Although by using this approach higher capacity can be achieved for LTE, performance of other wireless technologies operating in this band such as WiFi can be degraded significantly. In order to enable efficient LTE/WiFi coexistence, we consider a coordinated structure via a virtual network entity. LTE users can transmit in the assigned time-slots, while WiFi users can compete with each other by using 𝑝-persistent CSMA in their exclusive time-share. In an unsaturated network, at each duty cycle, the TDMA scheduling for LTE users and 𝑝 values for WiFi users are updated to maximize the overall network throughput subject to a constraint on the minimum acceptable throughput for WiFi. The corresponding optimization problem is formulated and an iterative algorithm is developed to find the optimal solution using complementary geometric programming (CGP) and monomial approximations. The simulation results reveal the performance gains of the proposed algorithm in preserving the WiFi throughput requirement.
