Abstract: In this paper, we consider a four-node relay-based OFDMA system. The expression of the upper bound for the achievable rate in Successive Relaying (SUR) protocol is derived by using the cut-set theorem for half-duplex systems. Based on this expression, the near-optimal solution of the achievable rate is obtained in the joint power and subcarrier allocation constraint, according to the dual problem decomposition approach and the subgradient method. Moreover, we make a comparison on the achievable rate between SUR and Simultaneous Relaying (SIR) in the pathloss model accepted by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long Term Evolution (LTE) Advanced system. The simulation results demonstrate the enhancement of the achievable rate in SUR protocol is expanded in high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) compared with the achievable rate in SIR protocol under both the symmetric and asymmetric cases. And for SUR protocol , the achievable rate in symmetric case performs better in high SNR.
