Ignited by the mobile phone's huge success at the end of last century, the demand for wireless services is constantly growing. To face this demand, wireless systems have been and are deployed at a large scale. These include mobility-oriented technologies such as GPRS, CDMA or UMTS, and Local Area Network-oriented technologies such as WiFi. WiMAX Networks covers aspects of WiMAX quality of service (QoS), security, mobility, radio resource management, multiple input multiple output antenna, planning, cost/revenue optimization, physical layer, medium access control (MAC) layer, network layer, and so on.
Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WIMAX) is a technology covering broad range of topics. To the best of our knowledge, WiMAX Networks is a first book that deals with all the relevant areas. 1 namely, quality ofservice (QoS), security, mobility, radio resource management (RRM), multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna, planning, and cost/revenue optimization, medium access control (MAC) layer, physical layer, network layer, and so on.
