Abstract: This Research investigates the performance of adaptive equalization processing for Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) is a promising technology which can offer high speed voice, video and data service up to the customer end. Due to the absence of any standard specification, earlier BWA systems were based on proprietary standard. IEEE 802.11a Wireless MAN standard specifies a Medium Access Control (MAC) layer and a set of PHY layers to provide fixed and mobile Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) in broad range of frequencies. The OFDM has adopted in IEEE 802.11a PHY layer for the equipment manufacturer due to its robust performance in multipath environment. The paper investigates the simulation performance of IEEE 802.11a OFDM PHY layer. The overall performance analysis of the proposed equalization technique over Stanford University interim (SUI) channels was performed .The evaluation was done in simulation developed in MATLAB.
Keywords: (BWA), IEEE, BWA, MAN, (MAC), of DM, PHY, (SUI).
