Abstract: An exponential increase in the number of multimedia users over LTE network necessitates user prioritization and differentiated services support. LTE standard has defined Quality of Service (QoS) class-based user priority rather than priority among users within a QoS class. However, when the cell load exceeds the system capacity, Quality of Experience (QoE) of all the users may deteriorate due to lack of radio resources allocated to them. Under these circumstances, some users of interest may be prioritized over other users in the cell during resource allocation to enhance their QoE. In this paper, Proportional Fair (PF) scheduling algorithm Based User Priority (PFBUP) mechanism is proposed to prioritize organizational users over other users. Performance evaluation of the proposed mechanism is carried out using QualNet 7.1 network simulator by varying priority coefficient for the organizational users.
Keywords: LTE, Proportional Fair, Scheduling, Simulation, User priority.
