Title: Uplink scheduling for fairness in channel estimation performance

Abstract: Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate mitigation of interference through uplink scheduling in a wireless communication environment. Access points can assign multiple terminals to a single tile or segment of shared resource (e.g., a time frequency region) to maximize the number of terminals supported. However, combinations of certain types of terminals can cause a significant increase in interference. In particular, allocating multiple terminals having a relatively high velocity (e.g., terminals located in moving vehicles) to a single tile can cause an unacceptable increase in interference. To mitigate interference, high velocity terminals can be identified. Once identified, terminals can be allocated to the available tiles based at least in part upon avoiding combinations that result in a significant increase in interference.
