Chapter 12System-Level Performance of WiMAX

The link-level simulation and analysis results presented in Chapter 11 describe the performance of a single WiMAX link, depending on the choice of various physical-layer features and parameters. The results also provide insight into the benefits and the associated trade-offs of various signal-processing techniques that can be used in a WiMAX system. These results, however, do not offer much insight into the overall system-level performance of a WiMAX network as a whole. The overall system performance and its dependence on various network parameters, such as frequency-reuse pattern, cell radius, and antenna patterns, are critical to the design of a network and the viability of a business case. In this ...
