Executive Summary

The IEEE 802.16 is a recently standard to assemble the need of wireless broadband access network. The IEEE 802.16 standard works on the PHY and MAC layers. The Medium Access Control (MAC) channel is used to access of peering nodes, In accordance with the IEEE 802.16 MAC protocol, time is partitioned into frames of fixed duration, each one divided into two sub-frames, for control and data transmission, respectively. Slots in the control sub-frame are used by nodes to negotiate the schedule of transmissions in data sub-frames, and are accessed by means of a collision-free distributed procedure, namely the mesh election procedure.
