IEEE 802.16d PHY Layer SNR vs. BER performance analysis in different radio environments (software simulation)
The basic idea of the project revolves around the study to structure an architecture for backhauling any third party wireless access node over a Fixed WiMAX network.
The focus being set on performance evaluation for 802.16d WirelessMAN physical layer (PHY) to yield a maximum possible data rate while maintaining the maximum allowable Bit Error Rate (BER). The PHY computer-simulation developed in this regard helps predict the data carrying capacity under specified multipath conditions; while maintaining the said BER. The scheme therefore assesses the
radio link for backhauling the desired access point.
