Scheduling and resource allocation for mobile broadband networks
Unlike traditional cellular networks, where voice calls dominate the network traffic, modern mobile traffic is created by of a mixture of both voice and broadband data services. The heterogeneous mixture of voice and data services in mobile broadband networks includes voice calls, web browsing, file transfers, video streaming, and social media applications. Consequently, network planning and radio resource management strategies must be aware of the quality of experience perceived by the users using various types of applications. In this report, we explore the traffic characteristics, scheduling and resource allocation strategies, and user experience models in mobile broadband networks.
