Design of a Unified Multimedia-Aware Framework for Resource Allocation in LTE Femtocells

In future 4G communication networks, it is expected that most of the bandwidth will be used to serve multimedia applications. Thus, there is a need for scheduling mechanisms, which can manage various types of multimedia communication (interactive, conversation, video streaming, etc.) and provide adequate Quality of Experience according to the application needs. The most promising candidate for 4G systems, i.e., Long Term Evolution, also integrates femtocells as a cost-effective solution for pervasive communication. In such a scenario, the implementation of effective scheduling mechanisms becomes even more important.
