IEEE 802.16, an emerging wireless technology for deploying broadband wireless metropolitan area network (WMAN), is one of, if not the most, promising wireless technology for the next-generation ubiquitous network. Not only does 802.16 provide network access anytime anywhere, but it offers a great deal of bandwidth equivalent to a typical wired network. WMAN could be highly survivable compared to cabled networks in case of natural disasters such as the hurricane in New Orleans, 2005, or the tsunami in Southeast Asia, 2004. Moreover, WMAN could be easily and efficiently deployed in underdeveloped countries, with the lack of infrastructure, as the demand for communication is presumably growing exponentially.
