Focusing on the foundation and interactions among components of Mobile WiMAX, Deploying Mobile WiMAX illustrates scenarios of network and radio technology. This book enables readers to utilise the flexibility of IP-based mobile broadband access networks with the scalable OFDMA radio interface. Describing the principles of the Releases 1.0 and 1.5 network and air interface specifications, it also identifies the technical challenges of integrating Mobile WiMAX, and examines its future enhancements. The underlying principles behind the WiMAX network specifications are provided, allowing network designers to decide which features and options to use when planning deployments.

  • Introduces the fundamentals of Mobile WiMAX deployments within both new and established telecommunications networks
  • Explains the rationale behind the Mobile WiMAX network and radio specifications enabling designers to make use of all applicable features
  • Sets out the major building blocks of the topic and acts as a general reference for developers
  • Utilizes the latest Release 1.5 network and radio specifications of the WiMAX Forum
  • Written by expert authors who have actively contributed to the design of the fundamental concepts adopted in the standardized specifications

Meet the Author

Max Riegel is head of WiMAX and IEEE standardization at Nokia Siemens Networks. He is engaged in the WiMAX Forum as co-chair of the Networking Working Group and participated in the 16ng Working Group of the IETF as technical advisor and contributor. He has more than 25 years’ of experience in the telecommunications industry and more than 15 years’ of professional experience in the technical and operational issues of the Internet. After more than 10 years in management positions for telecommunication product development within several companies, he joined IETF standardization in 1998. Being engaged in IEEE 802 standardization since 2000 and in the WiMAX Forum since 2004, he is an expert in broadband wireless Internet access with deep involvement in Mobile WiMAX radio and network standardization from its very beginning. He has a Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University Munich, Germany.

Dirk Kroeselberg received a diploma degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Giessen, Germany, in 1997. He joined Siemens in 1998, working on a broad range of communication security topics for Siemens Corporate Technology and Siemens Mobile Phones. He has been with Nokia Siemens Networks since April 2007, being responsible for WiMAX Forum network standardization. He is co-chairing the work on network architecture evolution within the WiMAX Forum Network Working Group (NWG) and leads the standardization efforts within NWG for emergency services support and WiMAX-SIM that are now part of the Release 1.5 WiMAX network specifications.

Aik Chindapol received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington in 2000. He joined Siemens Mobile Networks, Siemens Corporate Research and Nokia Siemens Networks in 2001, 2003 and 2007, respectively. Prior to WiMAX, he was previously engaged in research and standardization of GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. During 2006–2009, he led teams from Siemens and Nokia Siemens Networks in the successful standardization of IEEE 802.16, Mobile WiMAX Radio Release 1.5, and the 2009 revision of the IEEE 802.16 standard. His current research interests include network coding, error control coding, radio resource management and performance optimization of mobile broadband systems.
