A delay-oriented packet scheduling scheme is proposed for downlink OFDMA networks with heterogeneous delay requirements. Using a novel packet utility concept, the proposed algorithm can exploit diversity from traffic characteristics and requirements to improve delay performance for delay sensitive traffics. Besides, the proposal also shows good ability in balancing fairness and efficiency. Simulation results show that our proposal outperforms existing delay-oriented scheduling schemes in terms of both delay performance and spectrum efficiency.
