Radio Access Network Requirement for New Deployment of WIMAX in Dhaka
Mobile WiMAX is expected to be the next generation radio-interface, complementing WLAN and challenging EVDO/HSPA/LTE. High speed data rate, reduced latency, better Quality of service, and mobility can allow WiMAX to meet the rapidly growing demand of the users. A study of WiMAX Radio Network Planning (RNP) for an urban area like Dhaka city in Bangladesh is presented in this paper in order to help predetermine the radio access infrastructure requirements. A suitable radio planning tool has been used for this purpose. The simulation results of throughput and Carrier to Interference plus Noise Ratio (CINR) are provided.
