Executive Summary

The IEEE 802.16-2005 (Mobile WiMAX) is a specification of a broadband wireless network intended to support multiple services namely video based services. This paper evaluates the network capacity in order to support TV broadcasting. As of today, despite the standard, in a SISO configuration, specifies bit rates as high as 20 Mbps, the tests showed that the multicast capacity obtained in the urban area was around 6.5 Mbps. Besides, the tested system supports handover. The results also show that WiMAX is able to support mobile services at least up to 140 km/h.
