WiMAX Physical Layer

  • Mustafa Ergen


WiMAX air interface is based on a IEEE standard emerged from 802.16 working group. The IEEE 802.16 Working Group focuses on Broadband Wireless Access Standards. The group develops standards and recommended practices to support the development and deployment of broadband Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (Wireless MAN).
