WiMAX is the first standard technology to deliver true broadband
mobility at speeds that enable powerful multimedia applications such as
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), online gaming, mobile TV, and
personalized infotainment. WiMAX Security and Quality of Service,
focuses on the interdisciplinary subject of advanced Security and
Quality of Service (QoS) in WiMAX wireless telecommunication systems
including its models, standards, implementations, and applications.
Split into 4 parts, Part A of the book is an end-to-end overview of the
WiMAX architecture, protocol, and system requirements. Security is an
essential element in the wireless world and Part B is fully dedicated to
this topic. Part C provides an in depth analysis of QoS, including
mobility management in WiMAX. Finally, Part D introduces the reader to
advanced and future topics.
* One of the first texts to cover security, QoS and deployments of WiMAX
in the same book.
* Introduces the primary concepts of the interdisciplinary nature of
WiMAX security and QoS, and also includes discussion of hot topics in
* Written for engineers and researchers, answering practical questions
from industry and the experimental field in academia.
* Explains how WiMAX applications security and QoS are interconnected
and interworked among the cross layers.
