  4. Abstract:
  5. One of the main advantages of utilizing flexible backhaul in future HetNets is that it can provide better user experience through flexible resource allocation. For this purpose, it is important to provide the required quality of service (QoS) in such networks. In this paper, we consider the problem of cross-layer radio resource management in HetNets with flexible backhaul which guarantees minimum total transmit power of BSs as well as the average end-to-end data rate requirement of each data flow. The problem is formulated as a two-timescale stochastic optimisation, where the long-timescale control variables are flow control, routing control and interference mitigation, while the short-timescale control variable is instantaneous beamforming within each cell. Using stochastic cutting plane, we propose an online cross-layer hierarchical algorithm in which the long-term controls are updated centrally at radio resource management server (RRMS) without needing to know the global statistical information of the network, and the short-term control variables are updated locally at each BS with only the local instantaneous CSI available at each cell. The proposed algorithm has low complexity and signalling overhead. Moreover, simulation results show the significant gains of our proposed algorithm over various baselines
