The bandwidth allocation in both wired and wireless networks has posed great challenges to network engineers for improving desirable Quality of Service (QoS), Bandwidth allocation is always an important element for improve QoS of network. Despite this, IEEE 802.16e-2005 does not have a bandwidth allocation algorithm or mechanism to support (worldwide interoperability for microwave access) WiMAX network presently. This includes both uplink (UL) and downlink (DL) directions. Thus, most of researches are focusing in this area. In order to improve the QoS of WiMAX demand, the total capacity of WiMAX system must be optimized.
