Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, a new technique for cross layer design, based on present Eb/N0 (bit energy per noise density) ratio of the connections and target values of the Quality of Service (QoS) information parameters from MAC layer, is proposed to dynamically select the Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) at the PHY layer for WiMAX Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) networks. The QoS information parameter includes New Connection Blocking Probability (NCBP), Hand off Connection Dropping Probability (HCDP) and Connection Outage Probability (COP). In addition, a Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) based Call Admission Control (CAC) algorithm and Queue based Scheduling algorithm are integrated for the cross layer design.
