The major challenge for the second decade of this century is the implementation of access to high-speed internet, known as broadband internet. Thus, the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) has developed a new standard for wireless access, called IEEE 802.16. Also known as WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), it is an emerging technology for next generation wireless networks which supports a large number of users, both mobile and nomadic (fixed), distributed across a wide geographic area. Based on these assumptions, and considering that the standard does not specify a scheduling algorithm, a new scheduler with call admission control was proposed based on Latency-Rate (LR) server theory and with system characteristics as specified by the system standard using the WirelessMAN-OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) air interface. The proposed scheduler calculates the time frame (TF) in order to maximize the number of stations allocated in the system while managing the delay required for each user. Properties of this proposal have been investigated theoretically and through simulations. The results of simulations show that an upper bound on the delay can be achieved for a large range of network loads, with bandwidth optimization.
