The IEEE 802.16 standard (commonly known as WiMAX), which has emerged as a broadband wireless access technology, is capable of delivering very high data rates. However, providing performance guarantees to delay sensitive applications like streaming media is still a challenge. We study the media access control (MAC) layer of WiMAX and exploit its flexible features to construct MAC packet data units (MPDU) dynamically. The sizes of the MPDUs are constantly modified based on channel state… CONTINUE READING
