A scheduling algorithm has the primary role in implementing the quality of service guaranteed to each flow by managing buffer space and selecting which packet to send next with a fair share of network. In this thesis, some scheduling algorithms for packet switching networks are studied. For evaluating their delay, jitter and throughput performances, a discrete event simulator has been developed. It has been seen that fair scheduling provides, fair allocation of bandwidth, lower delay for sources using less than their full share of bandwidth and protection from ill-behaved resources.
