Qualitative Investigation of the Performance of Real-Time Application of IEEE 802.16e Standard WiMAX Relay Networks
The ability of an application to adapt its behavior to changing network conditions depends on the available bandwidth, throughput, delay and packet loss in a network path. These are of major importance in congestion control, streaming applications, quality of service verification, relay selection and many other areas in WiMAX relay stations. Mobile WiMAX, which is based on the IEEE 802.16e standard, provides support for and enables full mobility to users. In an effort to optimize and enhance the overall network throughput, this paper will propose a mobile relay framework.
