Propagation Model Analysis Of WiMAX Fixed Wireless Physical Layer Networks
In this paper, the authors present the analysis of WiMAX propagation model for wireless communication systems and allow them to estimate path loss on the channel. They developed a model using MATLAB simulator and implemented it, which considers channel losses and reflects their effects on the physical layer. The implementation of the system involves different types of modulation techniques and coding rates defined in the IEEE 802.16 standard. The results of this model allow them to obtain the BER vs. Eb/No plots for different combinations of modulation types and coding rates as defined in the standard.
