DESIGN OF WiMAX TRANSMISSION NETWORKS
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.
—Philip K. DickHow to Build a Universe that Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later (1978)
WiMAX is a flexible and innovative technology with high-spectral efficiency. We have seen the main features of the WiMAX physical and MAC layers and how they function in tandem to provide a connection oriented service with guaranteed QoS and security features. In this chapter, we go beyond the technology specifications and PHY and MAC layer functions to look at:
• The link budgets
• Impact of interference
• Network design considerations
• Multiple antenna techniques in network design
The individual components of a WiMAX system, conforming ...
