With the wide and rapid deployment of wireless LANs technology, WiMAX is an emerging technology in wireless communication and is one of the hottest subjects in wireless communications.
Mobile WiMAX is based on selected papers and plenary speeches from the 2007 IEEE Mobile WiMAX Symposium, this book provides a comprehensive summary of state-of-the-art mobile WiMAX technology, including MIMO OFDMA physical layer transmission, WiBRO, medium access control, network architecture and relay networks. Multimedia applications and services are also examined and deployment and business models are explored. Following the ITU’s announcement that it has adopted mobile WiMAX as IMT-2000 TDD OFDMA, the sixth version of global 3G standards, this book is one of the first to supply advanced information and trials.
- Summarises the fundamental theory and practice of mobile WiMAX
- Presents topics at introductory level for readers interested in understanding the communication and networking theories
- Progresses to advanced, specialised subjects related to mobile WiMAX
- Contains the latest advances and research from the field and shares knowledge from the key players working in and researching this area
Mobile WiMAX is an essential text for engineers working in telecommunication, wireless multimedia applications and system integration and also for business development professionals and academic researchers in mobile WiMAX, 3G TDD and mobile communications. It will also be of interest to graduate students conducting research and studying mobile WiMAX and next generation wireless communications.
