A wide range of emerging real-time services (e.g. VoIP, video conferencing, video-on-demand) require different levels of Quality of Services (QoS) guarantees over wireless networks. Scheduling algorithms play a key role in meeting these QoS requirements. A distinction of QoS guarantees is made between deterministic and statistical guarantees. Most of research in this area have been focused on deterministic delay bounds and the statistical bounds of differentiated real-time services are not well known. This paper provides the mathematical analysis of the statistical delay bounds of different levels of Constant Bit Rate (CBR) traffic under First Come First Served with static priority (P-FCFS) scheduling. The mathematical results are supported by the simulation studies. The statistical delay bounds are also compared with the deterministic delay bounds of several popular rate-based scheduling algorithms. It is observed that the deterministic bounds of the scheduling algorithms are much larger than the statistical bounds and are overly conservative in the design and analysis of efficient QoS support in wireless access systems.
