This paper provides a simple mathematical model
of different packet scheduling policies in Long Term Evolution-
Advanced (LTE-A) systems, by investigating the performance
of Proportional Fair (PF) and the generalized cross-Component
Carrier scheduler from a theoretical perspective. For that purpose,
an abstract Radio Resource Management (RRM) framework
has been developed and tested for different ratios of
users with Carrier Aggregation (CA) capabilities. The conducted
system level simulations confirm that the proposed model can
satisfactorily capture the main properties of the aforementioned
scheduling metrics without any need for explicit design at a
subframe resolution; hence, making it a promising candidate
for a convenient scheduler implementation in simulators with
simplified RRM modelling.
