The scheduling algorithms will have a significant impact on the throughput experienced by the UE's when the UE's are placed at different distances (different CQI/MCS) from the gNBs. 

NetSim supports the following Scheduling Algorithms:

1. Round Robin

2. Proportional Fair

3. Max Throughput

4. Fair

The Scheduling mechanism can be selected from gNB Properties > Interface 5G RAN > Datalink Layer

The detailed working of the MAC scheduler is explained in the example "Impact of MAC Scheduling algorithms on throughput, in a Multi UE scenario" available with NetSim's documentation. (See the 5G NR manual in
