Executive Summary

Providing multimedia services in wireless networks requires maximizing the system throughput without sacrificing fairness. Previous works focus on system capacity optimization but fail to jointly ensure adequate fairness. This paper proposes a new MAC scheduling scheme which dynamically takes in consideration the QoS experienced by the mobiles and the transmission conditions in an extended cross-layer design. Based on a weighted opportunistic algorithm, the resource allocation takes a maximum advantage of multiuser diversity optimizing fairness and system throughput.
