Summary form only for tutorial. Recent developments on wireless communication technology have resulted in tremendous innovations to make wireless access networks able to replace the wired access networks with much more bandwidth. The IEEE 802.16e, which was officially published in February 2006, has specified all the techniques needed at the physical layer, and the services that should be provided at the medium access control (MAC) layer in the WiMax systems. With the support of mesh networking, WiMax systems can be easily configured as a wireless metropolitan area networks (WMAN). It has further enhanced the ability of WMANs with mobility support. In this tutorial, the WiMax system will be explained according to the IEEE 802.16d/e standard. An introduction on the mesh networks and mobility support in WiMax systems will also be included.
