This paper addresses specific smart grid communication requirements. It considers a last-mile network based on an IEEE 802.16 cell deployed to cover a group of customers and serve their Energy Services Interfaces. Based on the communication requirements of smart grid last-mile applications and entities, we propose a traffic priority model and setup for the WiMAX air interface. Finally, we evaluate the proposal using a discrete-event simulator.
