As a demand for high speed uplink packet services increases, the WCDMA enhanced uplink, also known as high speed uplink packet access (HSUPA), has been specified in release 6 by 3GPR The performance of the HSUPA has been improved using fast scheduling, hybrid ARQ, and shorter TTI. This HSUPA will provide various types of multimedia services, such as realtime video streaming, gaming, VoIP, and FTP. Generally, the performance of HSUPA is dominated by scheduling policy. Therefore, it is required to design a scheduling algorithm considering the traffic characteristics to provide QoS guaranteed services in various traffic environments. In this paper, we propose a scheduling algorithm considering the traffic characteristics to guarantee QoS in a mixed traffic environment. Finally, the performance of the proposed scheduling algorithm is evaluated in terms of average packet delay, packet delay jitter, and system throughput using a system level simulator.
