1. What is scheduler in LTE?

Schedulers are located above the physical layer (on MAC layer). The basic function of schedulers is
to allocate system resources to UEs in each sub-frame for UL and DL transmissions, so that the UEs
can transmit and receive data.

2. What is minimum scheduling unit?

Resources are allocated to UEs in units of resource blocks (RBs). The minimum scheduling unit
consists of 12 subcarriers (spanning 180 kHz in the frequency domain) and 1 subframe (lasting 1 ms
in the time domain).

3. Which scheduling policies does Huawei eNodeB support?

Huawei eNodeBs support four scheduling policies:
Maximum carrier-to-interference ratio (Max C/I)
Round robin (RR)
Proportional fair (PF)
Enhanced proportional fair (EPF)

4. Which DL resource allocation modes does Huawei eNodeB support?

Huawei eNodeBs support two DL resource allocation modes: frequency diversity scheduling and
frequency selective scheduling.
