Book Description: WiMAX: Technology for Broadband Wireless Access is aimed at readers with basic technical knowledge in the telecommunications field. This is a technical introduction to WiMAX, explaining the rather complex standards (IEEE 802.16-2004 and 802.16e). Some techniques are introduced and justified in order to give a global pedagogic and yet detailed presentation of WiMAX technology. Topics covered include: WiMAX topologies, protocol layers, MAC layer, MAC frames, WiMAX multiple access, the physical layer, security and comparisons of WiMAX and WLAN (WiFi). The clear and concise description of WiMAX technology is complemented by a glossary of abbreviations and their definitions, and a wealth of explanatory tables and figures.
