The extension of multi-criteria LTE MAC scheduler for multiple RAT environment”, ORCA, 2nd Open Call

Partners

Project overview

In this project we are delivering and testing the solution for cooperation between multi RAT technologies (LTE, WiFi) using the LWA technique. The key focus is on effective operation of multi-RAT scheduler with the RAN-controller developed by IS-Wireless

Role of IS-wireless

IS-Wireless develops multi-RAT scheduler and adjusts it to the needs of testbed (e.g. FAPI), RAN-controller prototype is integrated with ns3 to enable control of the WiFi offloading. The approach based on the QoS and QoE feedback to the scheduler is compared and evaluated for suitability.

Main contributions

  • multi-RAT scheduler design for LTE and WiFi
  • Definition of effective LTE scheduler – LWA – RAN controller interaction strategy
  • Designing and performing the target set of tests and experiments (QoS and QoE based quality feedback)
