Capacity Estimation and TCP Performance Enhancement Over Mobile WiMAX Networks

Date Added: Jun 2009

The mobile WiMAX system is based on IEEE 802.16e, which defines radio interface supporting several classes of Internet Protocol applications and services. While the mobile WiMAX system is being deployed, IEEE 802.16m TG is developing an amendment to the IEEE 802.16e to greatly improve the system performance, and it is focusing not only on the PHY and MAC performance but also on a level of end-to-end performance improvement that includes the scope of the network and application to embrace the strong market request and interest. To evaluate the mobile WiMAX system capacity and performance, all the aspects of performance evaluation - from air link to application - are required.
