THESIS TITLE: Resource Allocation Framework for Downlink Subframe of Mobile WiMAX.
Thesis research is about managing the allocation of downlink radio resources for Mobile WiMAX base station. Downlink resource management is the process of allocating scarce-shared resources among subscribers in the downlink direction. The main and common problem of resource allocation management is resource wastage, which is directly translated to a decline in the overall performance of Mobile WiMAX system, since it represents bandwidth shortage which adversely affects all Mobile WiMAX system participants and vice versa. Research of the thesis presents a novel design of dynamic resource allocation framework for Mobile WiMAX base station that focuses on optimum resource wastage reduction to increase utilization efficiency of the downlink channel bandwidth.
