Summary

This appendix covers the WiFi and WiMAX systems and applications. In particular, the PHY and MAC features of the IEEE 802.11 a/g and IEEE 802.16d/e are summarized. Also discussed are the network architectures and some of the key enabling algorithms and schemes (e.g., modem, coding, framing and channelization, access, etc.) of both systems. At the end, we present a performance analysis on a 5MHz WiMAX system. The study provides the comparison metric (capex/mbps/subscriber) displaying the advantages of broadband channels in supporting a large number of broadband subscribers.
