Mobile WiMAX MAC and PHY Layer Optimization for IPTV
WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) embodies the IEEE 802.16 family of standards that provision wireless broadband access. With the IEEE 802.16e???2005 mobility amendment, WiMAX promises to address the ever-increasing demand for mobile high speed wireless data in Fourth-Generation (4G) networks. WiMAX market studies continue to project increased subscriber growth rates and planned carrier trials worldwide. Coupled with these increasing growth rates and higher WiMAX throughput rates, bandwidth intensive Video on Demand (VoD), Internet Protocol TV (IPTV), and mobile TV services are emerging in the forefront of the mobile arena.
