wimax network planning part 1

WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) ( 802.16 - 802.16e ).WIMAX was developed to promote conformance and interoperability of the IEEE 802.16 standard (Wireless MAN).

we will learn how we can planning a wimax network but first we should know some important things .

Frequency Planning :

         • The frequency re-use is extremely important in reducing the interference and therefore increasing the capacity
         • Off-the-shelf frequency assignment do not minimize the deployment cost for your system.
         • An optimum frequency assignments can be applied by considering
         • Site locations
         • Power levels
         • User distribution
         • Spectrum availability
         • Geography and building characteristics.

Site Features Optimization

         • Number of antennas
         • Antenna directions
         • Antenna heights
         • Antenna powers
         • Antenna tilts
         • Number of channels
         • Frequency of channels
         • OFDM Parameters
         • Cyclic prefix
         • Number of subchannels
         • Subchannelization rates
         • Available modulations
         • Handover parameters
         • MIMO settings
         • Uplink / Downlink traffic ratios
         • Voice over IP related issues
         • Backhaul planning: fiber, minilink, HDSL…. capacity issues
