Abstract
To evaluate the performance of Round Robin (RR) and
Proportional Fair (PF) scheduling algorithms using
EXata network emulator for real video traffic generated
by Video LAN (VLC) media player by considering
Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR) and throughput as
performance metrics.

Introduction to LTE (1/3)
Recent trend of video applications has demanded wireless
broadband technology like LTE
Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is a Third Generation
Partnership Project (3GPP) standard for wireless
Broadband Access
The fundamental aim of LTE is to improve the service
provisioning by
improving data rates, coverage, system capacity
reducing latency
Downlink Peak data rate with 2 Ch MIMO: 100Mbps
Uplink Peak data rate with Single Ch Tx: 50 Mbps (20
MHz Ch)

Introduction to LTE (2/3)
Control plane Latency is less than 100 msec to establish U
plane
Control plane Latency is less than 10 msec from UE to
server
Mobility optimized for low speeds (0 15 Km/hr) and
high performance at speeds up to 120 Km/hr. Also to
maintain link at speeds up to 350 Km/hr
Coverage up to 5 Km with full performance and up to
30Km with slight degradation
user & operator cost

IP networks

Scheduling does the task of dividing and allocating
resources among users involved in data transmission.
The scheduler uses the following information as input
Radio conditions at the UE identified
The QoS attributes of bearers
Resource allocation history
Scheduling in LTE is carried out by packet scheduler
present at the Medium Access Control (MAC) sublayer of
eNB.

Scheduling in LTE
RR algorithm gives equal
scheduling chance to each user in
the cell
Or
RR algorithm assigns equal
number of Resource Blocks to
each user in the cell


Round Robin Scheduling Algorithm
Resources are allocated to User
with higher instantaneous
throughput to average throughput
Proportional Fair Scheduling
Algorithm
