This paper presents a scheduling scheme for a FLO based advanced TDMA system to enable service multiplexing from user terminals. The FLO specifications allows different traffic types to use appropriate transport formats to meet QoS requirements of each class of traffic. Service multiplexing can be achieved by selecting appropriate transport formats for each traffic class and then combining them in a single packet and transmitting over a single slot of a TDMA air interface. The paper introduces a scheduling scheme known as LQP which can offer higher throughput for using a FLO based air interface. The paper presents some initial simulation results obtained from an OPNET based simulation model.
