A fairness and QoS guaranteed scheduling approach with fuzzy controls (FQFCs) is proposed for WiMAX OFDMA systems. The controllers, respectively, adjust priority and transmission opportunity (TXOP) for each WiMAX connection according to QoS requirements and service classes. The FQFC provides intra- and interclass fairness guarantees by making connections within the same class achieve equal degree of QoS while at the same time making those without QoS requirements equally share the remaining resources. Even in dynamic environments such as mobile WiMAX networks with time-variant traffic specifications, the FQFC fairly guarantees delay, throughput, and jitter, which are seldom achieved at the same time by state-of-the-art solutions.
