WiMAX: MAC Layer Performance Assessments
This paper focuses on WiMAX since this wireless technology allows broadband communications. This paper provides here a preliminary study on MAC layer performance as well as a sensitivity study to its parameters. A simulation approach has been adopted, based on the ns-2 environment to investigate the impact that real-time traffic has on non-real-time traffic and vice versa. The study presented in this paper has been carried out in the framework of the EU FP6 WEIRD project.
