This paper proposes two different packet schedulers for IEEE 802.16e type time division duplex - orthogonal frequency division multiple access (TDD-OFDMA), which are the weighted fair scheduling (WFS) and the throughput guarantee scheduling (TGS). The performance of proposed schedulers is compared to those of some of conventional schedulers such as round robin (RR), proportional fair (PF), fast fair throughput (FFTH), and fair throughput (FTH) in terms of service coverage, effective throughput and fairness at 64 kbps and 128 kbps minimum user throughput requirements. For a relatively smaller throughput (64 kbps) requirement, the proposed schedulers increase the number of users per sector within 95% service coverage while satisfying the 1xEV-DV fairness criterion. For a relatively larger throughput (128 kbps) requirement, the proposed schedulers provide higher coverage than the PF scheduler while maintaining the same effective aggregate throughput.
