【Abstract】Inspired by classical results in real-time scheduling, we address the problem of delivering packets with hard deadlines over unreliable wireless networks.We begin by considering a model of an access point serving several flows,and provide a possibly surprising characterization of what throughput vectors feasible,as well as throughput-optimal scheduling policies that are almost static. Then we turn to multi-hop networks with end-to-end deadlines,and obtain fully decentralized policies that are computationally tractable and throughput optimal.
