In this paper, we propose a packet-by-packet scheduling algorithm which grants priority to each packet instead of a user. The proposed scheduler classifies packets inside of each user into three classes such as emergency, near emergency, and non-emergency packets based on packet delay ratio, and applies different scheduling schemes to grant priority in each region respectively. It can be possible to manage packets more efficiently for guaranteeing various Quality of Services (QoS) in wireless multimedia systems. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme offers higher system throughput and lower packet drop rate than other scheduling algorithms.
