Abstract

A packet scheduling algorithm known as Enhanced Maximum-Largest Weighted Delay First (EM-LWDF) is proposed in this paper. It aims to maximize the number of Real Time (RT) and Non Real Time (NRT) users that meet their desired Quality of Service (QoS) in the cognitive Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A). This cognitive LTE-A allows its Component Carriers (CCs) to be combined with licensed CCs from another system. This enables the LTE-A to further expand the available bandwidth for packet transmission. The EM-LWDF algorithm decides the priority of each user on the basis of the desired QoS of each packet, the urgency of each packet, channel quality and the average throughput. The potential of this algorithm is validated via computer simulation where it is able to simultaneously maximize more users that meet their desired QoS in realistic RT and NRT multimedia of the downlink cognitive LTE-A.

ABSTRAK: Algoritma penjadualan paket yang dikenali sebagai Enhanced Maximum-Largest Weighted Delay First (EM-LWDF) dicadangkan dalam kertas ini. Ia bertujuan untuk memaksimumkan bilangan pengguna Real Time (RT) dan Non Real Time (NRT) yang memenuhi Kualiti Perkhidmatan yang dikehendaki (QoS) dalam system kognitif Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A). Kognitif LTE-A ini membolehkan Carrier Component (CC) untuk digabungkan dengan CC berlesen dari sistem lain. Ini membolehkan LTE-A untuk memperluaskan jalur lebar yang tersedia bagi penghantaran paket. Algoritma EM-LWDF menentukan keutamaan setiap pengguna berdasarkan QoS yang dikehendaki dari setiap paket, kecemasan setiap paket, kualiti saluran dan purata penghantaran. Potensi algoritma ini disahkan melalui simulasi komputer di mana ia dapat memaksimumkan lebih banyak pengguna yang memenuhi QoS yang dikehendaki mereka dalam realistik RT dan NRT multimedia dari downlink sistem kognitif LTE-A.
