Statistical QoS Assurances for High Speed Wireless Communication Systems

Ferit Akgul, Oguz Sunay


In this paper we propose the use of statistical QoS guarantees for transmission over the wireless channel. Here, instead of QoS assurances we propose to guarantee the percentage of time the QoS requirements are satisfied. We present an associated scheduling algorithm for the opportunistic multiple access system. We compare the proposed scheduler with popular schedulers from the literature. We observe that the statistical QoS guarantee is an attractive alternative to the assured QoS for the wireless platform, since such strict QoS assurances decrease the wireless system performance significantly.
