WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology aimed at providing wireless data over long distances in a variety of ways based on the IEEE 802.16 standard. This book presents radio resource management and performance analysis for WiMax by using PRM (Performance Resource Management). Providing a balance between academic and manufacturer contributors, the title offers different standpoints that can satisfy a reader looking for theoretical analysis and advanced algorithms or searching for their concrete application in the early deployment of Wimax. The title also demonstrates the importance of relaying to WiMax based on both research and standardization. Illustrated by many simulation results, this book will increase the reader's knowledge of WiMax and provide an up-to-date outlook of the R&D activities currently undergone in the broadband wireless system area.
