WIMAX is predicted to be a serious competitor to existing wireless systems (WLL, LMDS, GSM, UMTS), offering an advanced air-interface and all-IP architecture, which implies more complex network design and deployment. This tutorial aims to provide a design process and generic methodology that can be applied in different WIMAX deployment scenarios. The presentation of the methodology will be structured in such way to address both industrial and academic audience. The tutorial will present design guidelines and best practice information, based on theory and instructor's experience in actual deployments, and outline a mathematical approach of WIMAX network design, which is currently far from optimum given the technological complexity. The tutorial also aims to address ways to improve the design process for current WIMAX networks and also highlight several potential research issues.
