We consider a system of parallel servers handling users of various classes, whose service rates depend not only on user classes, but also on the set of active servers. We investigate the stability under two types of allocation strategies: (i) server assignment where the users are assigned to servers based on rates, load, and other considerations, and (ii) coordinated scheduling where the activity states of servers are coordinated. We show how the model may be applied to evaluate the downlink capacity of wireless data networks. Specifically, we examine the potential gains in wireless capacity from the two types of resource allocation strategies.
