The vehicular safety applications disseminate the burst messages during an emergency scenario, but effort to reduce delay of communication are hampered by wireless access technology. As conventional VANET (Vehicular ad-hoc network) connected intermittently, the LTE-based framework has been established for the vehicular communication environment. However, resource allocation which affected by many factors, such as power, PRB (physical resource block), channel quality, are challenging to guarantee the safety services QoS in LTE downlink for OFDM. In order to solve the problem of safety message dissemination in LTE vehicular network, we proposed a delay-aware control policy by leveraging cross-layer approach to maximize the system throughput. First, we model the resource allocation problem using the queuing theory based on the MISO. Second, the method casts the problem of throughput and latency for dynamic communication system into a stochastic network optimization problem, and then makes tradeoffs between them by Lyapunov optimization technique. Finally, we use the improved the branch and bound algorithm to search optimal solution in system capacity region for these decomposed subproblems. The simulation results show that our algorithm can guarantee the delay while maximum system throughput
