This paper is concerned with the analysis of scheduling performance in downlink WCDMA networks that employ adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) and fast cell selection (FCS). The scheduling schemes investigated include (i) the round robin (RR) scheme, (ii) the maximum carrier-to-interference ratio (C/I) scheme, (iii) the simplified proportional fair (PF) scheme, and (iv) the conventional PF scheme. The channel model includes large-scale signal attenuation and small-scale fading. By using a form analogous to Shannon's channel capacity formula, a logarithmic relationship between the instantaneous data rate and the C/I with AMC is first established. Using the so-called Poisson scheme in which the probabilities of the occurrence of the events in Bernoulli trials depend on the trial index, FCS implementation is then examined in detail. Finally, a complete set of analytical expressions on the average system throughput, the peak data rate and the fairness for the abovementioned scheduling schemes are derived.
