Dynamic Load Balancing Through Coordinated Scheduling in Packet Data Systems
— Third generation code-division multiple access (CDMA) systems propose to provide packet data service through a high speed shared channel with intelligent and fast scheduling at the base-stations. In the current approach base-stations schedule independently of other base-stations. We consider scheduling schemes in which scheduling decisions are made jointly for a cluster of cells thereby enhancing performance through interference avoidance and dynamic load balancing. We consider algorithms that assume complete knowledge of the channel quality information from each of the base-stations to the terminals at the centralized scheduler as well as a twotier scheduling strategy that assumes only the knowledge of the long term channel conditions at the centralized scheduler. We demonstrate that in the case of asymmetric traffic distribution, where load imbalance is most pronounced, significant throughput gains can be obtained while the gains in the symmetric case are modest. Since the load...
