Providing Quality of Service (QoS) to different service classes with real-time and non-real-time traffic integration is an important issue in WiMAX systems. Opportunistic MAC (OMAC) is a novel view of communication over spatiotemporally varying wireless links. It combines the features of a cross-layer design and an opportunistic scheduling scheme to achieve high utilization while providing QoS to various applications. Channel characteristics, traffic characteristics and queue characteristics… CONTINUE READING
