In-band wireless full-duplex is a promising technology that enables a wireless node to transmit and receive at the same time on the same frequency spectrum. In OFDMA networks, the full-duplex transmission makes the resource allocation problem more challenging, in particular when user devices are not full-duplex capable. In this paper, we investigate the joint problem of subcarrier assignment and power allocation to maximize the sum-rate performance in full-duplex OFDMA networks. To achieve high throughput in the considered network, we propose to use a practical subcarrier assignment condition which allows a subcarrier to be allocated to a pair of uplink and downlink nodes when its inter-node channel gain is lower than its uplink channel gain. Considering this condition and the inter-node interference, we design three resource allocation algorithms which run for; i) uplink first, ii) downlink first, and iii) uplink and downlink in pair. Through simulation, we evaluate our solutions in comparison with conventional schemes with respect to performance gain.
