Mobile WiMAX Network Planning and Optimization

S. O. Ajose and O. L. Erhuen
Abstract—Software suitable for estimating Mobile WiMAX capacity in network planning and optimization is presented. The implementation of the software is based on analytical method to evaluate IEEE 802.16e Mobile WiMAX system’s capacity, throughput and a traffic model for mixed application users. Various Overheads that impact the capacity of the system are analyzed. A step by step description of the analysis is made and a flow chart for the determination of available bandwidth and maximum number of users supported is presented. Based on the description of the flow chart, a program in java language that implemented the entire analysis is written. A simulation of the software is used for the determination of the maximum number of subscribers that each specific Mobile WiMAX sector can support. This would help service providers to plan and implement a wide coverage network in a city. The proposed analytical method and software program will enable service providers to estimate the number of base stations that can be deployed in a given area. Thus the network investment, profitability and avoidance of future network congestion can be evaluated and estimated.

Index Terms—IEEE 802.16e, mobile WiMAX, overheads.
