Long Term Evolution (LTE) network deploys Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology for downlink multi-carrier transmission. To meet the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements for LTE networks, packet scheduling has been employed. Packet scheduling determines when and how the user's packets are transmitted to the receiver. Therefore effective design of packet scheduling algorithm is an important discussion. The aims of packet scheduling are maximizing system throughput, guaranteeing fairness among users and minimizing either or both Packet Loss Ratio (PLR) and packet delay.
