Throughput performance and geographical service fairness of best effort service used for downlink of a 802.16e based TDD-OFDMA sectored cellular networks are evaluated in conjunction with different scheduling schemes and frequency reuse plans. The OFDM systems are based on two multiple access schemes, which are the OFDM-TDM and OFDMA, and considered scheduling schemes are round robin, max C/I, PF and G-fair schedulers with adaptive rate control. The 3-sectored 1 FA, 3-sectored 3 FA, and 6-sectored 3 FA plans are compared in terms of throughput, capacity, and geographical service fairness, which assist in determining the choice of a scheduling and frequency reuse plan.
