I need help creating a thesis and an outline on LTE Versus WiMAX Versus 802.22. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Wimax architecture is created in a way that allows more than one service at a single instance of time. The single transceiver can perform the task of voice transmission and internet connection on the same established path. On the physical layer, it performs the functions of signal encoding and signal decoding. hence security aspect is addressed on the physical layer. The medium access control layer at the transmission end is concerned with compiling the data into frames and checking for errors while on the receptor end allocate addresses and ensure error detection if any. At the convergence layer encapsulation of the frame is performed into the local MAC layer. This is followed by the translation of the quality of service parameters into local MAC format. The architectural part further handles time dependencies and adjusts them according to the traffic.
For the purpose of error correction the scheme used is Reed –Solomon code.
Modulation schemes used: Q.P.S.K, Q.A.M
Devices used in WImAX : C.P.E ( customer Premises Equipment ),wi-fi,R.F components .Microwave backhaul.
Use of OFDMA in its architecture: Wimax makes use of OFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing access technique), there have been many upgrades and improvements added over a period of time that has made Wimax more preferred.
Power efficiency feature of Wimax: Wimax provides power efficiency in various modes operating in different cycles. It has got three power save classes’ power save 1, power save 2, and power save 3, each operating at different levels (Andrews pg 365).
Comparison: L.T.E vs. Wimax: There has been a long debate over the comparison between the two as to which one will surpass the other and which one of the two provides better means and can be chosen over the other since both are in the race. Wimax is relatively more mature than L.T.E since it has been in the market for the last few years. L.T. E, on the other hand, has just been introduced on a commercial level across the globe.
