  • Analysis and Design of a Reliable Packet Transfer Mechanism for WIMAX

    Today is the world of mobile and wireless communication. With the increase of its use there are some problems still under research regarding WIMAX. One of such major problem is the security. Security is always the main issue for any network and with the wireless network it requires more concern. This work is also presented in the same area. We are presenting our work regarding the liability of the data on the arrival side. This data can be a voice or some digital data. Over the network the Active attacks are very common. The proposed approach will provide a reliable packet marking in such network. We are proposing the probabilistic packet marking with the inclusion of four other approaches. i) A Definite Randomize packet marking approach to decide the transmission path. ii) An approach to trace back the path to identify the visited route. iii) A combination of Context based and Dictionary based encoding approach to verify the transmitted data. iv) A Checksum will be applied to vary the alteration of data. The proposed system will result more reliable transmission on WIMAX.

  • Interframe spacing adaptation method for IEEE 802.11 WLANs coexisting with IEEE 802.16 networks

    In cognitive networks, secondary users (SUs) are regulated to prevent them from accessing a channel if primary users (PUs) are currently occupying the channel. However, there is no strict regulation about how to coordinate the channel access among multiple SUs belonging to heterogeneous networks with different channel access policies. In this paper, we consider the coexistence problem for two specific SUs of carrier sense multiple access (CSMA)-based IEEE 802.11 network and centralized scheduling-based IEEE 802.16 network. We propose an inter frame spacing (IFS) adaptation method that allows IEEE 802.11 SUs to fully utilize idle intervals between successive IEEE 802.16 frames while not interfering with the following IEEE 802.16 frame. Through various simulations, we show that our proposed method significantly improves the throughput of IEEE 802.11 networks without harmful interference to IEEE 802.16 systems.

  • QoS based handover in heterogeneous networks

    Today, the user is interested in comparing one service with another in terms of universal, user-oriented performance parameters which apply to any end-to- end service. The QoS concept encapsulates the idea that different data streams could be treated differently by the network depending upon the service being carried. QoS features shall provide the required performance of latency, jitter and packet loss needed to support the service. In this paper we have analyzed QoS in case of Wi-Fi/WiMAX and WiMAX/Wi-Fi handover.

  • The deployment of wireless networks in high voltage substations: A feasibility study

    The use of wireless technologies in high voltage environments is increasing with the growing need for monitoring and preventive maintenance in electricity utilities. The feasibility of deploying wireless technologies in high voltage environments such as substations is addressed in this paper. High voltage substations are different from common area due to the presence of many metallic structures causing multiple reflexions, diffractions and scattering. The simulations are performed using realistic substations representation and up-to-date radio equipments specifications. The propagation coverage and the maximum throughput achievable are presented for three wireless technologies, WiFi, WiMAX and 900 MHz systems. The simulation results are discussed and some recommendations are given. Note that the impact of impulsive noise such as partial discharges is not addressed in this paper which only focuses on the evaluation of wireless systems under specific multipath scenario of substations.

  • FPGA implementation of rate-compatible QC-LDPC code decoder

    The use of rate-compatible error correcting codes offers several advantages as compared to the use of fixed-rate codes: a smooth adaptation to the channel conditions, the possibility of incremental Hybrid ARQ schemes, as well as simplified code representations in the encoder and decoder. In this paper, the implementation of a decoder for rate-compatible quasi-cyclic LDPC codes is considered. The decoder uses check node merging to increase the convergence speed of the algorithm. Check node merging allows the decoder to achieve the same performance with a significantly lower number of iterations, thereby increasing the throughput. The feasibility of a check node merging decoder is investigated for codes from IEEE 802.16e and IEEE 802.11n. The faster convergence rate of the check node merging algorithm allows the decoder to be implemented using lower parallelization factors, thereby reducing the logic complexity. The designs have been synthesized to an Altera Cyclone II FPGA, and results show significant increases in throughput at high SNR.

  • Seamless Layer 2 Framework for Heterogeneous Networks

    With the popularization of the wireless and wired networks, this paper will regard WiFi, WiMAX and CATV (DOCSIS) as the research objects, focus on the relevant technology of seamless layer 2 framework for heterogeneous networks. Seamless communication is the most important topic of this paper, beside it, routing cost and QoS guarantees, will also be important problems that must be considered in the future. This paper will combine Wi-Fi, WiMAX and DOCSIS into family's heterogeneous networks, and propose the seamless integration mechanism named Seamless Residential Gateway (SRG). SRG can offer formats and QoS mapping of heterogeneous networks, to promote and improve the connection quality of family's heterogeneous networks at present.

  • Enhanced performance features — IEEE 802.16 compared to other wireless technologies

    The wireless technologies are emerging in our society. Specifically, the aim of this paper is to provide a framework for the comparison of IEEE 802.16 with other wireless technologies based on the common set of configurations adopted by these technologies, which include channel models, system parameters etc. CDMA2000, WCDMA and WiMAX are three widely used wireless technologies. Since they share the same goal, which is to provide broader coverage and higher throughput in an impartial comparison of their performance is necessary. This paper takes a closer look at each of these technologies and compares max. speed, channels and efficiency. This study concludes that Mobile WiMax has great potential and it is found that WiMAX can provide high throughput while the two CDMA-based technologies provide high system spectral efficiency.

  • On WiMAX performance in license-free 5 GHz band using a beam-switching antenna

    WiMAX is the very well known 802.16 technology certified by the WiMAX forum. However, it is not largely known that the IEEE 802.16 standard foresees an option to use the technology on the license-free 5 GHz band. For such a use, the EIRP requirements for the 5 GHz band must be respected. The use of WiMAX technology in that band may be an interesting option for wireless backhauling and wireless mesh networks. Usually based on WiFi technology, the WiMAX technology has the advantage to be better conceived for outdoor environments and to possess QoS features which WiFi cannot offer. We investigate in this paper the performance of the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard in the 5 GHz band. On the client side a classic antenna and a beam-switching antenna were used. The tests were executed in the framework of a WiMAX multi-hop network set up in the context of the European FP7 project SMART-Net. The tests were carried out in Lannion, France.
