WiMAX - General information about the standard 802.16

This application note is one of three papers dealing with the WiMAX standard, covering the theoretical aspects of WiMAX. It gives a detailed overview of the basic concepts of WiMAX (FFT, OFDM, frame structures, etc) and explains the physical standard parts of IEEE 802.16 standards 802.16-2004, corr1 and 802.16e. Please see also 1MA97 for Generating and analyzing 802.16-2004 and 802.16e-2005 signals and 1EF57 for an introduction to the WiMAX standard.
