Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) systems have attracted considerable attention through technologies such as 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX). OFDMA is a flexible multiple-access technique that can accommodate many users with widely varying applications, data rates, and Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. OFDMA has the advantages of handling lower data rates and bursty traffic at a reduced power compared to single-user OFDM or its Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) or Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) counterparts. In our work, we propose a Particle Swarm Optimization based resource allocation and scheduling scheme (PSORAS) with improved quality of service for OFDMA Systems. Simulation results indicate a clear reduction in delay compared to the Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) scheme for resource allocation, at almost the same throughput and fairness. This makes our scheme absolutely suitable for handling real time traffic such real time video-on demand.
