%T A Performance Analysis of Different Scheduling Schemes in WiMAX
%V 99
%X IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) aims to present high speed
wireless access to cover wide range coverage. The base station (BS)
and the subscriber station (SS) are the main parts of WiMAX.
WiMAX uses either Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) or mesh topologies.
In the PMP mode, the SSs connect to the BS to gain access to the
network. However, in the mesh mode, the SSs connect to each other
to gain access to the BS.
The main components of QoS management in the 802.16 standard
are the admission control, buffer management and packet scheduling.
In this paper, we use QualNet 5.0.2 to study the performance of
different scheduling schemes, such as WFQ, SCFQ, RR and SP when
the numbers of SSs increase. We find that when the number of SSs
increases, the average jitter and average end-to-end delay is increased
and the throughput is reduced.
