This paper proposes a dynamic joint scheduling for the ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) and enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) traffic at a sub-frame level with a queuing mechanism, which monitors and controls the latency of each URLLC packet in real time to ensure its strict requirements. We analytically derive the outage probability (i.e., the probability of any URLLC packet drop over all transmission channels) and URLLC expected throughput in addition to the expected value of served URLLC packets. Then, a stochastic optimization problem is formulated to maximize the total throughput for the eMBB services, constraining the URLLC outage probability. Numerical results confirm effectiveness of our queuing policy to significantly reduce the URLLC loss rate while ensuring that the total eMBB throughput is not affected.
