In order to meet the requirements of 4G mobile networks targeted by the cellular layer of IMT-advanced, next generation mobile WiMAX devices based on IEEE 802.16m will incorporate sophisticated signal processing, seamless handover functionalities between heterogeneous technologies and advanced mobility mechanisms. This survey provides a description of key projected features of the physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layers of 802.16m, as a major candidate for providing aggregate rates at the range of Gbps to high-speed mobile users. Moreover, a new unified method for simulation modeling, namely the evaluation methodology (EVM), introduced in 802.16m, is also presented.
