In this article we propose cross-layer design frameworks for 802.16e OFDMA systems that are compatible with WiBro based on various kinds of cross-layer protocols for performance improvement: a cross-layer adaptation framework and a design example of primitives for cross-layer operation between its MAC and PHY layers. In addition, we provide a simulation framework for cross-layer analysis between the MAC and PHY layers in 802.16e systems. Through this cross-layer simulator, we show that average cell throughput can be improved by 25-60 percent by applying careful cross-layer adaptation schemes.
