Today, the main purpose of a scheduler for Long Term Evolution (LTE) is to provide the best system performance. However, it may decrease the system performance to have latency and starvation of lower priority connections in a resource allocation phase. There has been little research performed on LTE downlink scheduling and resource allocation. This paper proposes an efficient algorithm that includes scheduling strategies and resource allocation mechanisms, to avoid the latency or starvation of lower priority connections and to maintain system performance in downlinks of LTE.
