Real-time multimedia applications are becoming increasingly popular among mobile cellular users. Given that Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A), which is an emerging mobile cellular standard, needs to support these multimedia applications, packet scheduling is of paramount importance in LTE-A. This paper proposes a packet scheduling algorithm known as novel scheduling for usage in the downlink of LTE-A. It takes channel quality, average throughput, and packet delay into account when determining the priority of each user. Simulation results demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed algorithm in optimizing real-time multimedia performance for more mobile cellular users.
