Abstract
This report details and summarizes the work performed in developing computer simulation models for fixed and mobile WiMAX physical layers. The development was divided into 3 phases during which various simulation models of increasing complexity were produced. The models were coded using Matlab software. Emphasis was placed on developing source code in strict accordance with WiMAX standard specifications. The initial software models simulated a fixed WiMAX physical layer during which key concepts and technologies were investigated. The software models developed during the last phase provided a partial simulation of a mobile WiMAX physical layer. An excellent understanding was gained of mobile WiMAX technology and its limitations in a simulated environment. Simulations showed that the performance of the WiMAX physical layer is dependent strongly on the propagation channel through which the RF signals propagate.
