The primary concern of broadband wireless technologies is to provide the end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) for integrated real-time and non real-time applications. The main focus of the IEEE 802.16d/e MAC layer is to manage the radio recourse in an efficient way. The basic functional blocks of the QoS model are addressed by the standards to support five different types of service classes. However, the detailed admission control, radio resource management and scheduling are left for implementation perspective and many research efforts are on going to assure the QoS for end customers.
