  • Patent number: 10853138
    Abstract: Methods of scheduling usage of a resource between multiple resource users and corresponding schedulers are disclosed. The scheduling is performed by initially allocating a per-round usage allowance to each resource user of the multiple resource users and then determining a usage schedule for the resource in a sequence of rounds. At each round the determining comprises, for each resource user, when there are unscheduled usage requests for the resource user, scheduling a portion of the unscheduled usage requests which does not exceed the per-round usage allowance for the resource user, wherein the portion is scheduled for resource usage in association with the current round.

  • Patent number: 9107150
    Abstract: A method scheduling link activations within a wireless communications network including at least one network cell including a base station providing radio coverage over the network cell and at least one relay node putting the base station into communication with a user equipment within the network cell over an access link. The relay node communicates with the base station over a backhaul link. The method includes estimating, for the relay node, an access link capacity according to status information indicative of a status of the user equipment associated with the relay node, estimating a backhaul link capacity of the relay node according to the status information, and scheduling, for the relay node, either a backhaul link activation or an access link activation such that one of the backhaul link and access link is activated, in a predetermined time interval, based on a comparison between the access capacity and backhaul capacity.

  • Patent number: 9036624
    Abstract: Data streams are transmitted from a node towards a receiver in a communication network in the form of data packets for playout via a reproduction buffer at the receiver. The data packets are arranged in a scheduling queue and dropped from the scheduling queue if their sojourn time in the queue exceeds a given drop deadline. The reproduction buffer is emulated at the node in order to determine respective playout values for the data packets which are indicative of expected playout instants for the data packets by the reproduction buffer at the receiver. The drop deadlines are assigned to the data packets as a function of the respective playout values determined via the reproduction buffer as emulated at the node.

  • Patent number: 8964867
    Abstract: A method executed in a wireless communication network including at least one base station associated to a corresponding area transmitting/receiving data to/from corresponding user terminals located within the area. The method generates a user-rate matrix for each base station. Each element of the user-rate matrix provides a corresponding score, in terms of achievable rate, to a user terminal or group of user terminals within the corresponding area when a transmission is made to/from the user terminal or group of user terminals, respectively, from/to the base station by employing a selected transmission mode. The method further processes the elements of the user-rate matrix to create a scheduling list sorting the elements by a decreasing score, and associating to each user terminal a corresponding selected transmission mode based on the scheduling list for the transmission/reception of data to/from the base station.

  • Patent number: 8767760
    Abstract: In a communication network, a node receives from user equipment information on the length of a queue of information units to be transmitted to the node from the user equipment. The information, for possible use by the node in scheduling transmission of these information units from the user equipment, is in the form of quantized queue length information indicative of a lower bound and an upper bound for the queue length. Transmission of information units from the user equipment to the node is detected at the node, and an improved estimate of the queue length is produced by correcting the lower bound and the upper bound via subtraction of the number of the detected information units transmitted from the user equipment to the node.
