In this letter, we propose a packet scheduling algorithm to support both real-time voice and video traffic for wireless multimedia data service in orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) system. Our design objective is to maximize the number of real-time service users that can be supported in the system subject to QoS requirement of packet loss rate (PLR). Both time slots and subcarriers are taken into account as the basic resource allocation unit in OFDMA/FDD system. The simulation results show that our proposed algorithm can dramatically increase the number of users satisfying the underlying QoS requirement for the real-time service, as compared to the existing algorithm.
