This report details and summarizes the work performed in developing a computer simulation environment of the physical layer of a mobile WiMAX network. Since the work of WiMAX modeling was first started in April of 2008, several developmental computer simulation models were created of increasing complexity, the results of which were published in a prior report. The knowledge gained through these earlier simulation efforts were incorporated into the current simulation environment version. The amount of effort required to unravel the complexities of WiMAX was considerable but has produced an advanced simulation environment that is in accordance with the IEEE802.16e-2005 standard. The current version of the simulation environment refines the models previously developed with the addition of new functionalities and a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to facilitate the entry of the simulation parameters. The computer simulation described in this report models both the physical layer and part of the media access layer of a WiMAX network. The report describes the software architecture to provide a better understanding of its components and includes detailed instructions on how to setup and run the simulation.
