Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) constitutes an attractive trademark for supporting wireless access to Intranets and the Internet. Scheduling and mapping processes are of paramount importance since they dramatically affect the network performance. This paper endeavors to provide a robust mapping scheme for the downlink sub-frame with respect to various Quality of Service (QoS) constraints. Each downlink request creates rectangular regions, called Horizons, and the mapping technique applies a persistent probing of the Horizons recorded. The evaluation experiments conducted indicate that the scheme designed beneficially affects the system performance.
