This introductory volume provides a systematic overview of WiMAX technology, demystifing the technology and providing technical advice on various system trade-offs. Much of the material is based on the practical experiences of the authors in building new systems. Coverage includes the IEEE 802.16 standard, a tutorial on implementation and tips on controlling cost of WiMAX network ownership. This is a must read book for professionals involved in broadband fixed wireless access.
Explains and shows how to implement IEEE 802.16
Discusses multiple access options and surveys the technologies that can help reduce the cost of operator networks
