© 2016 IEEE. Performance comparison of various Packet Scheduling (PS) algorithms such as Proportional Fair (PF), Maximum Largest Weighted Delay First (MLWDF) and Exponential/Proportional Fair (EXP/PF) has been studied in HetNets environment. The performance indicators such as throughput, Packet Loss Ratio (PLR), delay and fairness are considered to judge the performance of the scheduling algorithms. Various strategies such as increasing the number of pico cells in the cell edge were used in the simulation for the performance evaluation study. The results achieved by various simulations show that adding the pico cells to the existing macros enhances the overall system performance in addition to various scheduling algorithms implemented in macros. Simulation results show that the overall system gain has increased by adding picos, provide better coverage in the cell edge and increase the capacity of the network to provide better Quality of Service (QoS). Furthermore, simulations show that MLWDF performs better for video traffic than compared to other with PS algorithms.
