Abstract : The fastest growing of multimedia services overfuture wireless communication system demand more networkresources, efficient delivery of multimedia service with highusers satisfaction, and power optimization of User Equipments(UEs). The resources and power optimization are significant infuture mobile computing systems, because emerging multimediaservices consume more resources and power. The 4G standard ofLTE-A wireless system has adopted the Discontinuous Reception(DRX) method to extend and optimize the UE battery life,while there is no standard scheduling method to distribute theradio resources among the UE. This paper presents a downlinkscheduler, i.e. Quality of Experience (QoE) Power EfficientMethod (QEPEM) for LTE-A, which efficiently allocates theradio resources and optimizes the use of UE power using theDRX mechanism. We investigates how the different durationof DRX Light and Deep Sleep cycle influences the QoS andQoE of end users, using VoIP over the LTE-A. The QEPEMis evaluated with the traditional methods, in terms of SystemThroughput, Fairness Index, Packet Loss Rate, and PacketDelay. The QEPEM measures the user’s QoE, and feedback toeNodeB for scheduling decisions along with other importantparameters. Our proposed method reduces the packet delay,packet loss, and increases the fairness and UE’s power savingwith high users satisfaction.
