Guaranteeing Quality of Service (QoS) for heterogeneous traffic is a major challenge in the Fourth Generation (4G) mobile networks. Therein, the absence of sophisticated resources allocation process at the base station jeopardizes QoS in terms of latency data transfer. It has been observed from the literature that low delay bounds might be ensured, however, at the expense of other QoS aspects; for example, throughput and data loss. Therefore, in this article, we propose an effective Delay–based…
