Performance Analysis of Neural Networks Based Priority Scheduler for WiMAX Under Bursty Traffic Conditions
Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is one of the most familiar broadband wireless access technologies that support multimedia transmission. IEEE 802.16 Medium Access Control (MAC) covers a large bandwidth allocation and Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms for various types of applications. Nevertheless, the standard lacks a MAC scheduling algorithm that has a multi-dimensional objective of satisfying QoS requirements of the users, maximizing channel utilization while ensuring fairness among users. So a novel priority based scheduling algorithm using artificial intelligence that addresses this aspect is proposed.
