We consider a geographic region that is entirely covered by a WMAN base station and partly covered by cellular network base stations and partly by WLAN access points (APs), as shown in Fig.
In this paper, we proposed a downlink baseband receiver for mobile WMAN that is applied in the STBCOFDM system with two transmit antennas and one receive antenna.
To determine the need for handoff, this calculated VHO factor is then compared against a threshold value that is predetermined based on the type (WLAN, WMAN, or WWAN) of the serving PoA.
The MMR establishes multiple communication paths to the Internet through external wireless interfaces such as WMAN and WWAN with high mobility and wide coverage.
The IEEE 802 networks are the IEEE 802.3 local area network (LAN), IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN (WLAN), and IEEE 802.16 wireless metropolitan area network (WMAN).
