In this letter, we propose an interference-aware resource allocation algorithm for the uplink of OFDMA systems. It comprises a macrocell overlaid with short range femtocells. We define the interferences that occur between a macrocell and femtocells and present the resource assignment algorithm to resolve and mitigate the cross-tier interference effect based on the defined interference factors. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm performs well in a macrocell and femtocells.
