This paper explores the problem of joint mode selection, spectrum management, power control, and interference mitigation for device-to-device (D2D) communication underlaying a Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) network. We consider a dynamic mode selection scenario, in which the modes (D2D or cellular) of the devices depend on optimal allocations. To improve the quality of service (QoS) for the users, the optimization objective in a corresponding problem is formulated in terms of buffer size of user equipments (UEs), which is estimated based on buffer status information collected by the UEs. The realizations of a resource allocation approach presented in the paper include its real-time and non-real-time implementations, as well as two modifications applicable to a standard LTE-Direct (LTE-D) network. Performance of the proposed algorithms has been evaluated using the OPNET-based simulations. All algorithms show improved performance in terms of mean packet end-to-end delay when compared to most relevant schemes proposed earlier.
