Abstract
In this research paper we propose a novel Passive Optical Network (PON) based Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) access network architecture to provide high capacity and performance multimedia services to mobile WiMAX users. Passive Optical Networks (PON) networks do not require powered equipment; hence they cost lower and need less network management. WiMAX technology emerges as a viable candidate for the last mile solution. In the conventional WiMAX access networks, the base stations and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antennas are connected by point to point lines. Ideally in theory, the Maximum WiMAX bandwidth is assumed to be 70 Mbit/s over 31 miles. In reality, WiMAX can only provide one or the other as when operating over maximum range, bit error rate increases and therefore it is required to use lower bit rate. Lowering the range allows a device to operate at higher bit rates. Our focus in this research paper is to increase both range and bit rate by utilizing distributed cluster of MIMO antennas connected to WiMAX base stations with PON based topologies. A novel quality of service (QoS) algorithm is also proposed to provide admission control and scheduling to serve classified traffic. The proposed architecture presents flexible and scalable system design with different performance requirements and complexity.
