It is expected that the proportional fair (PF) scheduler will be used widely in cdma2000 1xEV-DO systems because it maximizes the sum of each user’s utility, which is given by the logarithm of its average throughput. In this paper, we address an influence of the PF scheduler on the packet transmission delay in base station (BS) and propose an analytic model.
