Today's wireless broadband networks are required to provide QoS guarantee as well as fairness to different kinds of traffic. Recent wireless standards (such as LTE and WiMAX) have special provisions at MAC layer for differentiating and scheduling data traffic for achieving QoS. The main focus of this paper is concerned with high speed packet queuing/scheduling at central node such as Base Station (BS) or router to handle network traffic. This paper proposes novel packet queuing scheme termed as Low Latency Weighted Round Robin (LL-WRR) which is simple and effective amendment to Weighted Round Robin (WRR) for achieving low latency and improved fairness.
