Abstract

The broadband wireless access industry, which provides high-rate network connections to stationary sites, has matured to the point at which it now has a standard for second-generation wireless metropolitan area networks. IEEE Standard 802.16, with its WirelessMANTM air interface, sets the stage for widespread and effective deployments worldwide. This paper overviews the technical medium-access control and physical layer features of this new standard.
