Applied Wave Research announces another addition of the Mobile WiMAX solution for its Visual System Simulator (VSS) design suite. The software meets the specification defined in the wireless metropolitan area network (WirelessMAN) orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) physical layer (PHY) of the IEEE 802.16e Air interface for fixed and mobile broadband wireless access systems standard. In addition, it complements the IEEE 802.16d WirelessMAN-OFDM PHY fixed-wireless capability previously released by AWR. Mobile WiMAX is the wireless solution slated for the evolution of broadband cellular mobile networks and convergence with fixed broadband systems. It provides high data rates, quality of service (QoS) provisions and scalable bandwidths and is backed by hundreds of the world’s leading communication companies. The VSS Mobile WiMAX technology enables radio-frequency (RF) and baseband system-on-chip (SoC) designers, component suppliers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), user equipment companies, and infrastructure and network equipment providers to design and verify WiMAX-certified products. The software contains all bit-level processing defined in the 802.16e specifications, as well as the receiver functionality and the ability to incorporate circuit and RF interactions.
