Abstract

HSDPA specifications include support for a flexible framework for QoS management. In this paper, it is shown how buffer management could be incorporated into HSDPA QoS framework for 'multimedia' traffic QoS control in the MAC-hs of the Node-B. A time-space-priority (TSP) scheme is proposed as viable buffer management scheme to this effect. Comparative simulation study with other schemes is presented, demonstrating the effectiveness of the TSP buffer management scheme for 'multimedia' service QoS control in HSDPA Node-B data buffers.
