Software suitable for estimating Mobile WiMAX capacity in network planning and optimization is presented. The implementation of the software is based on analytical method to evaluate IEEE 802.16e Mobile WiMAX system's capacity, throughput and a traffic model for mixed application users. Various Overheads that impact the capacity of the system are analyzed. A step by step description of the analysis is made and a flow chart for the determination of available bandwidth and maximum number of users supported is presented. Based on the description of the flow chart, a program in java language that implemented the entire analysis is written.
