Abstract—This paper proposes a new mechanism of path selection and admission control for IPTV in IEEE 802.16j simultaneously. The proposed mechanism takes into account some constraints of Quality of Services (QoS) which are required by real-time applications, such as available bandwidth, end-to-end delay, number of hops between MR-BS and SS as well as quality of radio signal. With all these four constraints, selecting the best path becomes a multi-objective optimization problem, since we have two criteria to maximize and two other criteria to minimize. It makes selection process of the optimal path more difficult to find a solution in polynomial time. To solve this multi-constrained problem, the proposed approach applied a cost function which simplifies the multi-objective problem into single objective. This function provides a deterministic solution which takes into account all the above constraints. To evaluate the proposed mechanism, we study the performance of the proposed approach through various simulation scenarios. The results show that the proposed mechanism outperforms other studies.

An Efficient Study of Scheduling Algorithms with Friedman Test in WiMAX Networks

January 20, 2015

Abstract : 

In this paper, we evaluate and compare our scheduling strategy for various IPTV services traffic over 802.16j networks with several scheduling algorithms such as Strict Priority algorithm (SP), Weighted Round Robin (WRR), and Modified Dynamic Weighted Round Robin (MWRR). The proposed scheme adapts dynamically the scheduler operation to according queue load and QoS constraints. In particular, the proposed mechanism gives more priority to HD-TV and SD-TV traffics by using two schedulers. The proposed scheduling algorithm has been simulated using the QualNet network simulator. The Friedman test has been used to address some significant issues of the analysis to compare the proposed scheme with the others scheme. The experimental result and analysis show that the proposed scheduler schemes outperform the traditional scheduling techniques for rtPS traffic that allows ensuring QoS requirements for IPTV application.
