An opportunistic feedback technique is proposed for proportional fair (PF) scheduling in a downlink multi-user system. This technique requires each mobile station, the scheduling metric of which is higher than a threshold, to send one-bit feedback for PF scheduling. The scheduler determines the optimal modulation and coding scheme for a scheduled user based on channel quality indicator (CQI) update, which is sent on a longer period than the scheduling period. The simulation results indicate that PF scheduling with the proposed update scheme can achieve similar performance as PF scheduling with full CQI feedback. The feedback overhead can be reduced in comparison with typical PF scheduling provided that an optimal CQI update period is chosen. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2009.
