Wireless Broadband Multimedia Services over WiMAX Mesh Networks

This research project aims to investigate some technical challenges in providing end-to-end QoS performance guarantees for broadband multimedia services and applications over WiMAX mesh networks. Specifically, our principal research objectives are:

    To develop and analyse scalable system-wide resource management, admission control, routing, and peer-to-peer communication algorithms with end-to-end QoS guarantees.
  1. To develop and analyse dynamic power control, channel assignment, packet scheduling and mobility management algorithms for improving system capacity.
  2. To develop a flexible and comprehensive simulation platform for algorithms evaluation and software toolkits for network planning, dimensioning, performance monitoring and prediction.
