Abstract
In this paper, the data rate for the downlink (DL) of OFDMA-based IEEE802.16m WiMAX system and the available DL throughput as a function of distance to the Base Station (BS) are estimated for a number of propagation scenarios (OUTDOOR; INDOOR 1, INDOOR 2 and INDOOR 3). Moreover, Walls penetration loss is also considered. Adaptive modulation and Coding (AMC) schemes will be assumed in the present study for 5 MHz and 20 MHz channel bandwidth.
