This paper proposes a fast cross-layer cut-through switching mechanism (CCSM) for supporting media access control (MAC) layer packet switching in IEEE 802.16-based broadband wireless access (BWA) networks. The local traffic, which means subscriber stations (SSs) communicating with each other within the cell, can be switched via the MAC layer without involving the network layer. The average access delay of request from SSs is studied and analyzed in this paper. Finally, the simulation and numerical results show that the performance of CCSM is superior to that of the legacy IEEE 802.16d/e protocol.
