By predicting changes in service requirements and future evolution of network states, anticipatory networking aims at improving the performance of decision making and optimization algorithms. In this paper, we propose a reliability-aware scheduling model which exploits information of upcoming users' channel states to proactively optimize the resource allocation. Along with the optimal formulation, proved to be NP-hard, a heuristic is also presented. The evaluation of the proposed optimization model and corresponding heuristic is carried out assuming both a perfect prediction and an error-prone prediction of the achievable users' channel states and show that both are robust to errors.View Original Article
