Abstract

In the last few years, standardization activities within the IEEE 802.16 Working Group have resulted in the publication of specifications for an air interface of Fixed broadband wireless access systems. WiMAX is the commercial name of products compliant with the approved IEEE 802.16 standard. Although the standard suggests the main principles in designing a QoS architecture to support multimedia broadband services, implementation details are left to manufacturers. This article addresses a channel-aware scheduling algorithm conceived for a point-tomultipoint WiMAX architecture. It aims at enabling downlink traffic delivery with differentiated service treatment, even in nonideal channel conditions. A technique to compensate for channel errors is proposed to preserve QoS and fairness of a WF2Q+ based scheduling algorithm. The performance behavior of the proposed algorithm is confirmed by the outputs of a comprehensive simulation campaign.
