We consider packet scheduling in high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) networks in the presence of heterogeneous channels. In this case, proportional fairness (PF) scheduling and its enhanced version, the data rate control (DRC) exponent rule, fail to achieve the goal of providing fair data rates to users. We propose a new scheduling policy that(More)
Satellites are expected to have an important role in providing the Internet protocol (IP) multicast service to complementing next-generation terrestrial networks. In this paper, we focus on the deployment of IP multicast over the next generation of digital video broadcasting-based geosynchronous earth orbit satellites supporting multiple spot beams and(More)
This paper considers interactive traffic queuing delay estimation in high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) networks. The Web browsing is the most widely used interactive application. Its traffic model is subdivided into three levels: session level, burst level and packet level. Based on this model, the statistical behavior of the queueing delay is(More)
