hw does the wimax work

To implement a PHY/MAC of WiMAX is a cumbersome piece of work for a graduation project, it needs hundreds of working hours to do so and it needs a large team.
You can reach an optimization by selecting a PHY profile and select only two or three MAC layer message to implement
you'll need first to simulate it using a simulation tool, and then you'll need a programmable device to put the system on "SoC", you can use either DSP or FPGA

wimax phy and mac layer simulation

hi seif
i'm a fresh graduate and i was interested in wimax i read a lot about it and i understand ofdm and codes used on it like convolution code and i'm taking WIUMAX course .but unfortunately it wasn't my project but i want to make anything practically in wimax and the last year i read an advertisement of company that needs wimax engineer i wonder what functions can wimax engineer do
i hope u found a job now
best regards

wimax phy implementation dsp

to be frank, its highly challenging and difficult and one can say impossible task to take up implementation on and simulation of PHY/WiMax layers as a graduation project.

man, across world thousands of engineers are working on both the layers independently with hundreds of specialists and architects from past 2 yrs and only partial implementation and small percentage of deployment have been achieved.

even implementing basic PHY wimax layer will take nearly 300 to 400 working hours for a team of 4 members with proper training and in-depth knowledge in wireless and digital communications.

i suggest u to look into other projects.

mit wireless graduation project titles

Go ahead with the project. It is good one. As rmreddy says it is difficult, but you don't have to do the entire reciever -- you can do a small part like acquistion or channel estimation or mac thru put .....

Start with OFDM basics.

Yeah..i know a training Center called LEGEND it located at Cairo (Madenit Nasr) , and the Trainers are certified from Siemens here is teh courses and their price ::
Course Hours LE
WiMax Basics 18 350
WiMax Advanced 24 450
WiMax Planning 18 400


NO IT ISN'T ADVERTISE FOR LEGEND CENTER..BUT JUST A FRIEND TAKING ALREADY THIS PACKAGE AND THANK THEM ....

implementation of wimax in small univeristy area

hi everyone,i'm glad to see some experienced (on PHY layer simulation) users here :)
maybe u can help me to finish my graduate project ,i'm modeling the PHY Layer of MB-OFDM UWB system in Matlab ,i have managed to build the modulation-demodulation and OFDM parts ,BUT i can't build :convolution encoder (1/3, 3/4 ,5/8) with puncturing and interleaver(1/2) since i haven't got any advanced knowledge and experience on the codding subject.Could u help me to build this blocks in matlab ?i really need some help :)
Best regards

mac phy asic wimax price

depending on which university you study, if it's cambridge or MIT then I see no problem. However if it's 2nd tire universities, then an acceptable HW implementation of Phy/MAC of WiMAX will be a person's PhD, Msc and graduation job all rolled into one. And I would say you can only finish one of the four or five modes..

wimax mac implementation

Well "kel8157" not everyone has gone to MIT or Cambridge .... By 2nd tear your talking about 90% of world's universities... And you are saying it as if you have studied from Lunar University of Excellence!!

We the "2nd Tear" people have joined this group to learn from each other.

"matido" tell me the details of the convolutional encoder you want, I'll try to help you. Although I must advise you I'm not from cambridge or MIT or
"Lunar University of Excellence"
