Abstract: LTE is the abbreviation of Long Term Evolution. LTE networks are developed to provide enhanced Quality of Service (QoS), as today’s cellular world and its high speed multimedia applications demand variety of QoS along with a high speed data rate. Scheduling is a key feature of any network to achieve QoS requirements. The QoS widely depends on the distance of user from the Evolved- Node-B (eNB). The user near eNB experience good QoS and the user far away from eNB experiences poor QoS. The system performance is widely affected due to this. Hence, the ultimate and supreme goal of this research work is to enhance the QoS of the cell edge user and improve network performance. Proposed scheduling algorithm i.e. Improved Extended Modified Largest Weighted Delay First (IE-MLWDF) improves the cell edge throughput along with QoS of the cell – edge users. The paper compares IE-MLWDF with its previous versions namely Modified Largest Weighted Delay First (MLWDF) and Extended – MLWDF in terms of various network parameters. This paper presents a detailed analysis of a scheduling algorithm to enhance QoS of cell edge users to provide better network goals. This algorithm can further be extended or improved to make it more effective.
