Device-to-device (D2D) communication has been proposed as a mean for local connections in future ellular networks in order to provide improved throughput, spectrum savings, and longer battery lives. Here we widen the investigations of D2D communication to a 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) system simulated in the interference limited macro-cellular environment, in which D2D communication is applied with D2D specific power control and resource allocation schemes and with a wide range of deployment ratios. Furthermore, we introduce channel model parameters applicable for a fair performance comparison between conventional cellular and D2D enhanced systems. The simulation results demonstrate that both the D2D and cellular users can gain significant throughput improvements when appropriate power control and resource allocation methods are used. This is further emphasized when the share of D2D users increases.
