Traffic scheduling is key to the provision of quality of service (QoS) differentiation and guarantees in wireless networks. Unlike its wireline counterpart, wireless communications pose special channel-specific problems such as time-varying link capacities and location-dependent errors. These problems make designing efficient and effective traffic scheduling algorithms for wireless networks very challenging. Although many wireless packet scheduling algorithms have been proposed in recent years, issues such as how to improve bandwidth efficiency and maintain goodput fairness with various link qualities for power-constrained mobile hosts remain unresolved. In this paper, we devise a simple wireless packet scheduling algorithm called bandwidth-guaranteed fair scheduling with effective excess bandwidth allocation (BGFS-EBA), which addresses these issues. Our studies reveal that BGFS-EBA effectively distributes excess bandwidth, strikes a balance between effort-fair and outcome- fair, and provides a delay bound for error-free flows and transmission effort guarantees for error-prone flows.
