WiMAX is bringing about a worldwide revolution in broadband wireless access, including both fixed and mobile handsets. The IEEE 802.16 working group standardized most aspects of WiMAX signaling messages. However, several algorithms were left unspecified opening the door for innovations in protocol engineering for 802.16/802.20-based broadband wireless systems.

Get Connected to the WiMAX Revolution

WiMAX/MobileFi: Advanced Research and Technology brings together the world’s leading WiMAX researchers to present progressive techniques in the design, analysis, and optimization of protocols for WiMAX. This ground-breaking, previously unpublished, collection of papers addresses topics such as connection admission control, integration with WiFi Networks, QoS support, handoff management, scheduling algorithms, and load-balancing just to name a few. 

Written under the leadership of editor Yang Xiao, member of the IEEE 802.11 working group, WiMAX/MobileFi: Advanced Research and Technology represents the most cutting-edge survey of WiMAX technologies. It provides a foundation to support currently emerging applications as well as fuel the development of future innovations.
