Worldwide interoperability for microwave access is a wireless broadband solution that offers a rich set of features with a lot of flexibility in terms of deployment options and potential service offerings. Its main objective is to provide quality with cost effectiveness. But delivering QoS is more challenging for mobile broadband than for fixed. The time variability and unpredictability of the channel become more acute, and complication arises from the need to hand over sessions from one cell to another as the user moves across their coverage boundaries. The wireless medium has limited bandwidth, higher packet error rate, and higher packet overheads that altogether limit the capacity of the network to offer guaranteed QoS.
