A Scheduling and Call Admission Control (CAC) Algorithm for IEEE 802.16 Wireless Mesh Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The IEEE 802.16 or WiMax standard enables deployment of broadband wireless networks in geographically large areas. It supports three modes: Point To Point (P2P), Point to Multi-Point (PMP) and Mesh. WiMax system provides QoS guarantee in terms of bandwidth, delay and jitter. So scheduling and Call Admission Control (CAC) play an important role in a WiMax system. But the IEEE 802.16 standard does not specify any scheduling or admission control mechanism. In this paper, the authors present an efficient centralized scheduling scheme and a QoS aware CAC for WiMax network with a mesh topology.
