Fairness is key component for any scheduling algorithm. It is more crucial in IEEE 802.16 system where mix of real and non real time applications run concurrently. The study first proposes a three variable fuzzy based scheduling architecture for IEEE 802.16 networks. The proposed architecture solves uplink scheduling problem for IEEE 802.16 adaptively. The proposed system consists of three input and single output variable and makes allocations to real and non real time classes. The paper also lists results of experiment conducted to test fairness of proposed system. Fairness has been measured using Jain’s Fairness index and comparisons have been done against contemporary techniques.
