In this paper, we propose a new subcarrier allocation algorithm for a downlink OFDMA relay network with multicells. In the proposed algorithm, subcarriers are allocated to users and relays to maximize the overall sum of the achievable rate under fairness constraints. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm achieves higher data rate than the static algorithm and reduces the outage probability compared to the static and greedy algorithms.
