Long-term evolution-advanced (LTE-A), the true 4G technology of third Generation Partnership Project family, has a new feature that aggregates multiple LTE carriers so that users can be served on multiple component carriers (CCs). This characteristic plays an important role to increase data rate multiple times for LTE-A users with corresponding multiple CCs. However, current proposed packet scheduling (PS) algorithms ignore this effect in the effort of providing new solution that increases system performance. The modified proportional fair algorithms proposed in this study can provide optimised algorithm for PS mechanism in LTE-A system as well as other technologies that use multiple carriers. © 2012 The Institution of Engineering and Technology.
