ABSTRACT
We consider the problem of scheduling wireless data in sys-
tems such as 802.16 (WIMAX). Each scheduling decision
involves constructing a frame of one or more time slots.
Within each time slot multiple carriers must be assigned to
users. The important aspect of our problem is that a sched-
uler knows the channel rates across all users and all carriers
whenever a scheduling decision is made. Hence there is no
need to treat each carrier in complete isolation. This gives a
potential for enhancing performance by allocating multiple
carriers simultaneously.
We analyze this problem in a situation where finite queues
