Load Balancing Approach for Proposed Hybrid Scheduling Algorithm in Heterogeneous Networks

Sonia ., Rajesh Khanna, Neeraj Kumar


Recent developments in multiple technologies evolving nowadays provide users with broadband services of high quality and seamless mobility. Wireless networks comprising of third generation (3G) and fourth generation (4G) are on the verge to provide wide coverage and good mobility capabilities. All these high quality wireless networks have been deployed within one region overlapping each other, hence generating a heterogeneous network for wireless access which can be represented as 4G heterogeneous network. The 4G heterogeneous network overlapping Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Worldwide Interpretability for Microwave Access (WiMax) has been studied and a hybrid scheduling algorithm is designed and implemented for the heterogeneous network in this research work. The three types of scheduling algorithms have been implemented on the heterogeneous network and compared in this paper. A new load balancing approach is proposed which is combination of First come first serve (FCFS), Round robin (RR) including priority scheduling. The proposed scheduling algorithm’s performance is compared with other mentioned algorithms and measured in terms of bit error rate, signal to noise ratio and throughput analysis.

Keywords: Heterogeneous networks, quality of service, scheduling algorithm, FCFS, RR, priority scheduling, hybrid algorithm
