Architecture and Algorithms for Scalable Mobile QoS
We develop a simple analytical model to study the system and illustrate several key components of the approach. We formulate the problem of how to group the cells to form the virtual system as an optimization problem and propose a heuristic adaptive clustering algorithm as its solution. Finally, we perform simulations in a two-dimensional network to compare the performance obtained with VBC and adaptive clustering with alternate schemes, including the optimal offline algorithm.
