IEEE 802.16 Broadband Wireless Access Working Group IEEE Standard 802.16: A Technical Overview of the WirelessMAN™ Air Interface for Broadband Wireless Access 2002-06-04 Roger Marks NIST 325 Broadway Boulder, CO 80305 IEEE Std 802.16 The broadband wireless access industry, which provides high-rate network connectionsto stationary sites, has matured to the point at which it now has a standard for second-generation wireless metropolitan area networks. IEEE Standard 802.16, with its WirelessMAN™ air interface, sets the stage for widespread and effective deployments worldwide. This article overviews the technical medium access control and physical layer features of this new standard. This article was written byCarl Eklund, Roger B. Marks, Kenneth L. Stanwood, and Stanley Wang.

This document will improve the effectiveness of participants in IEEE Working Group 802.16 by providing an overview of the published basestandard upon which the Working Group is currently developing several amendments.
This document has been prepared to assist IEEE 802.16. It is offered as a basis for discussion and is not binding on the contributing individual(s) or organization(s). The material in this document is subject to change in form and content after further study. The contributor(s) reserve(s) the right to add, amend orwithdraw material contained herein. The contributor is familiar with the IEEE 802.16 Patent Policy and Procedures (Version 1.0) , including the statement “IEEE standards may include the known use of patent(s), including patent applications, if there is technical justiﬁcation in the opinion of the standards-developing committee and provided the IEEE receives assurance from the patent holder thatit will license applicants under reasonable terms and conditions for the purpose of implementing the standard.” Early disclosure to the Working Group of patent information that might be relevant to the standard is essential to reduce the possibility for delays in the development process and increase the likelihood that the draft publication will be approved for publication. Please notify the Chairas early as possible, in written or electronic form, of any patents (granted or under application) that may cover technology that is under consideration by or has been approved by IEEE 802.16. The Chair will disclose this notiﬁcation via the IEEE 802.16 web site .
