Abstract

In the context of mobility management and cross-layer design and optimization for multimode wireless access networks, the paper presents the simulation campaign done to construct a multidimensional decision space for WiMAX parameters, in order to identify the sets of configuration parameters with major impact into the handover process for the IEEE 802.16e mobile station. Simulation results could then be used by cross-layer optimization algorithms to increase the handover performance, from the application point of view.
