The demand for broadband services is growing sharply today. The traditional solutions to provide high-speed broadband access is to use wireless access technologies, like most data communications, WiMAX (Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access) relies on a process consisting of a session setup and authentication. The Radio Link Control (RLC) manages and monitors the quality of the service flow. With WiMAX, this process is a series of exchanges DownLoad and UpLoad (DL and UL) between the Base Station (BS) and Subscriber Station (SS). In this paper, the authors discussed a method to improving the throughput in mobile subscribers moving within the coverage. The IEEE 802.16 standard is introduced and especially Hand Over (HO) procedure. This paper shows that the IEEE 802.16 system has the capability to fulfill the requirements regarding the mobility management of future communication systems.
