Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is the name selected by WiMAX Forum for referring to the standard defined by the IEEE 802.16 task force. The standard introduces several interesting novelties both from PHY and MAC perspective which lead to a complex architecture. In order to understand and investigate its potentialities, analysis is needed. Due to its intrinsic complicated architecture nature, mathematical models may be only applied to portion of the whole system. The same has done for simulation with link level, system and network simulators.
