Pricing of differentiated-QoS services WiMAX networks

Abstract : WiMAX/IEEE 802.16 system is a very open Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) technology with different possible services. Pricing of WiMAX is an important topic with different optimization possibilities. In a previous paper, we investigated WiMAX pricing for real-time applications (Unsolicited Grant Service (UGS) and real-time Polling Service (rtPS) QoS classes of WiMAX) [7]. We add the Best Effort (BE) QOS class in this paper in order to have a rather complete WiMAX environment. The system model is described. Then we consider two different BE pricing mechanisms: fixed price and auction-based variable price. The proposed methods are evaluated through simulations in order to have some interesting comments and highlights for WiMAX pricing.
