5G, as the next phase of mobile communications standards, intends to offer connectivity with greater throughput, higher capacity, lower latency and higher mobility range. 5G is promised to meet the demands of emerging applications, such as Internet of things (IoT) (e.g., wearables, connected cars, mobile phones, robots, and smart home appliances) to access to the Internet. However, the devices on IoT are expected to grow exponentially in the following years, resulting a dramatic increase in bandwidth requirements. Thus, more efficient management and planning of the network's bandwidth resources are essential in the evolution of mobile systems. In this vein, we propose an Intelligent Scheme (IS) to schedule the communications in the mobile systems for enabling emerging applications, such as connected cars. In our scheme, a core component controller is added to the network, which consists of two parts: the controller database and the controller server. The resource availability status of each cell is recorded in the database. The controller server cooperates with the Intelligent Start Algorithm (ISA) on the end-user controlling the traffic of the whole network. The uploading of time-non-sensitive content is delayed if there are not enough resources at the located cell. We evaluate the performance of this Intelligent Scheme (IS) based on NS-3. The obtained results indicate that our Intelligent Scheme (IS) manages to reduce the packet loss and improve the Quality of Experience (QoE) for users. As most of the added functions can run in the format of software, no dedicated hardware is needed and the overall system cost is expected to be minimal.
