Abstract: In order to offload base station (BS) traffic and to enhance efficiency of spectrum, operators can activate many Device-to-Device (D2D) pairs or links in LTE networks. This increases the overall spectral efficiency because the same Resource Blocks (RBs) are used across cellular UEs (CUEs)(ie, all UEs connected to BS for both C-Plane and D-plane communication) and D2D links (ie, where the UEs are connected to BS only for C-plane communication). However, significant interference problems can be caused by D2D ...
