An adaptive hybrid scheduling algorithm for LTE-Advanced

Barakat, Basel and Arshad, Kamran (2015) An adaptive hybrid scheduling algorithm for LTE-Advanced. In: 2015 22nd International Conference on Telecommunications (ICT).

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The 3 rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) introduced Long Term Evolution (LTE) in release 8, and afterwards it was updated significantly in later releases (referred to as LTE-Advanced). LTE and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) aim to achieve higher spectral efficiency, higher data rates, robustness and flexibility. Intelligent channel-aware radio resource scheduling is one of the key features of LTE-A. A number of schedulers proposed in the literature rely on the feedback sent from the Users Equipment (UE) without considering the presence of feedback delay. In this paper, we analyse the effect of the uplink delay on the cell performance of existing schedulers, in terms of throughput and the users' fairness. We then propose an adaptive hybrid scheduler to overcome the effect of the uplink delay on the scheduler performance. The simulation results show that our proposed scheduling algorithm outperforms the existing schedulers in the presence of uplink feedback delay.
