High demand for mobile voice puts forth the requirement of high VoIP capacity over WiMAX networks. Although WiMAX networks are well-known for high-speed internet access on the go, VoIP capacity over WiMAX is low due to large control overhead. In this paper, we propose Group Resource Allocation (GRA) mechanism that reduces the control overhead and hence increases VoIP Capacity over WiMAX. In GRA multiple users are provided allocation as a group. Grouping is based on common traffic and channel characteristics and uses bitmaps to signal resource allocation information to users. Grouping of users and use of bitmaps reduces control overhead. Simulation results show that a 40% gain in VoIP capacity over WiMAX can be achieved with Group Resource Allocation.
