Performance Study Of Proportional Fair Scheduling Algorithm With Transmit Diversity Multi-Antenna Technique For Lte Network
Long Term Evolution (LTE) access network is based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access
(OFDMA) which provides multi user diversity gain to enhance the system throughput. However, fading of a radio channel
causes inter channel interference and reduces overall system throughput. This deteriorating effect of wireless channel fading
is higher for mobile users which can be reduced by channel aware scheduling algorithm and transmit diversity multi-antenna
technique. Hence in this paper, an attempt has been made to evaluate the effect of mobility on the performance of Proportional
Fair (PF) channel aware scheduling algorithm in conjunction with transmit diversity multi-antenna technique by considering
throughput, delay and jitter as performance metrics.
