Wire line infrastructures can be considerably more expensive and time consuming to deploy than a wireless one. In addition, rural areas and developing countries frequently lack optical fiber or copper-wire infrastructures for broadband services and providers are unwilling to install the necessary equipment for regions with little profit potential. Wireless approaches could address this problem. Wireless communication poses special problems that do not exist in wired networks, such as time varying channel capacity and location dependent errors. The paper proposed focuses on the QoS aspects like maximum bandwidth utilization and fairness. The conventional scheduling algorithms available are not meeting the necessary QoS parameters.
