Fuzzy Based Priority Scheduler for WiMAX With Improved QoS Constraints
Wireless interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is one of the most familiar broadband wireless access technologies that support multimedia transmission. IEEE802.16 Medium Access Control (MAC) covers a large area for bandwidth allocation and Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms for various types of applications. Nevertheless, the standard lacks a MAC scheduling algorithm that has a multi-dimensional technological objective of satisfying QoS requirements of the users, maximizing channel utilization while ensuring fairness among users. So the authors are proposing a novel priority based scheduling algorithm using fuzzy logic that addresses these aspects.
