Scheduling algorithms for wireless cdma networks

Hakyemez, Serkan Ender
In recent years the need for multimedia packet data services in wireless networks has grown rapidly. To overcome that need third generation (3G) mobile services have been proposed. The fast growing demands multimedia services in 3G services brought the need for higher capacity. As a result of this, the improvement on throughput, traffic serving performance has become necessary in 3G systems. Code division multiple access (CDMA) technique is one of the most important 3G wireless mobile techniques that has been defined. The scheduling mechanisms used in CDMA plays an important role on the efficiency of the system. The power, rate and capacity parameters are variable and dependent to each other in designing a scheduling mechanism. The schedulers for CDMA decide which user will use the frequency band at which time interval with what power and rate. In this thesis different type of algorithms used in time slotted CDMA are studied and a new algorithm which supports Quality of Service (QoS) is proposed. The performance analysis of this proposed algorithm is done via simulation in comparison to selected CDMA schedulers.
