Abstract

The purpose of this document is to understand the details of the IEEE 802.16d, or fixed WMAN standard. Specifically to understand the air interface and the general architecture of the protocol in order to represent these as accurately as needed in a simulation. The various assumptions that are needed to abstract the system are given in the conclusion.
