Efficient resource allocation for delay-sensitive traffic, such as telephony and video streaming, in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) networks is needed to increase system performance. In our system, users try to achieve a low queuing delay and buffer space usage by competing for transmission over the subchannels. We formulate this problem as a bargaining game and use the Nash Bargaining Solution (NBS) to realize a fair and efficient subchannel allocation for the users. Simulation results show performance improvements, with regard to packet dropping and delay distribution, over other algorithms.
