This paper considers the problem of maximizing the system throughput in IEEE 802.16 broadband access networks with mesh topology, and the following results are presented. We consider a linear chain network and discuss its applicability for providing cost effective solutions in sparsely populated areas, such as interstate highways and rural communities. We provide an optimal scheduling algorithm and establish an analytical result on the length of the schedule for linear chain networks. We also… CONTINUE READING
