Performance Analysis of Quality of Service in PMP Mode WiMax Networks
IEEE 802.16 is a set of telecommunications technology standards aimed at providing wireless access over long distances in various ways, from Point-To-Point (PTP) to full mobile cell-type access. IEEE 802.16 standard supports Point-to-MultiPoint (PMP) and mesh topologies. This paper proposes a Quality of Service (QoS) mechanism for IEEE 802.16 in PMP mode and a Base Station (BS) scheduler for PMP mode. It also describes the QoS over WiMAX networks. The average WiMAX delay, load, and throughput at the BS were analyzed and compared by applying different schedulers at the BS and fixed nodes.
