Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is one of the most promising technologies for the next generation networks as it provides high data rates at medium and long range with full support of mobility. The technology is based on IEEE 802.16 standards and amendments specifying the MAC and PHY layers for fixed, nomadic, portable and mobile access. High speed mobility scenarios require low delay handover so as not to degrade end-to-end QoS indicators, such as delay time or data loss, that are significantly more affected.
