Abstract

See full text

A method is described including deriving, by a wireless device, a first value for each of a plurality of queues. The first value is derived from a second value and a delay between scheduling transmissions for that data queue. The second value is associated with a data rate, and each of the plurality of data queues is associated with a priority. Data is selected by the wireless device from at least one of the priority queues for transmission based on the derived first value. Also described is a wireless device with a plurality of data cues and circuitry configured for each of the plurality of cues to derive the first value and to select data from at least one of the priority queues for transmission based on the derived first value.
