The LTE specification provides QoS of multimedia services with fast connectivity, high mobility and security. However, 3GPP specifications have not defined scheduling algorithms to support real time and non-real time application services. In this paper we propose a modified version of M-LWDF and EXP/PF scheduling algorithms based on token mechanism, which provide better performance to real time flows such as video and VoIP in downlink system. By taking the arrival rates of packets to queues into account, the proposed mechanism included in previous scheduling algorithms, can increase remarkably the bit-rate for multimedia services. Simulation results show that the proposed modified algorithms can achieve a throughput gain for real time services specially for video traffic. Performance evaluation is conducted in terms of system throughput and packet loss ratio (PLR).
