Traditional distributed wireless video scheduling is based on perfect control channels in which instantaneous control information from the neighbors is available. However, it is difficult, sometimes even impossible, to obtain this information in practice, especially for dynamic wireless networks. Thus, neither the distortion-minimum scheduling approaches aiming to meet the longterm video quality demands nor the solutions that focus on minimum delay can be applied directly. This motivates us to…

Hardness of Low Delay Network Scheduling

It is shown that unless NP ⊆ BPP (or P = NP for the case of determistic arrivals and deterministic policies), and even if the required throughput is a very small fraction of the network's capacity, there does not exist a low-delay policy whose computation per time step scales polynomially with the number of queues.
