Efficient QoS-Based Scheduling Mechanisms for IEEE 802.16e Networks
Users have become more acquainted to broadband access. IEEE 802.16, a standard for broadband wireless communication in Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN) promises to be one of the best wireless access technologies capable of supporting very high bandwidth applications. The main objective of WiMAX is to deliver wireless communications with high Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees, security and mobility. Many scheduling algorithms compatible with the IEEE 802.16 standards are proposed in the literature with the tenacity of throughput optimization, fairness enhancement and QoS provisioning.
