Cellular networks are becoming more and more crucial to our daily lives and operators are seeking new technologies for increasing their bandwidth. Examples for such technologies are cell sectorization, fractional frequency reuse, and coordinated multipoint Tx/Rx. To take advantage of these new technologies, the scheduler logic at the base station needs to determine not only when to transmit each packet but also what modulation and coding scheme to use, which frequency reuse area's resources, and by which transmitting antenna. In this talk, I will discuss all these modern scheduling problems and present algorithms for solving them
