IEEE 802.16d was developed for WIMAX wireless communication, which is based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology, to enable advancement towards 4G The last decade have seen growing importance place on research in wireless communication system. A recent surge of research on WIMAX has given them opportunities and challenges. In this paper, the authors describe the implementation of WIMAX baseband transceiver on multi-core Software-Defined Radio (SDR) platform. This work presents a new approach to the adaptation of WIMAX technology on the basis of SFF SDR development platform. The proposed WIMAX system was modelled-tested, and its performance was found to comply with Stanford University Interim (SUI) Channel Models that have been elected for the wireless channel in the simulation process.
