In this paper, a novel solution to dynamically control the resources of
a WiMAX system is proposed. The presented solution is aligned with the NGN
trends, as well as with the WiMAX Forum guidelines and architecture. The
interaction with the WiMAX systems is performed through SNMP, supporting the
standardized IEEE 802.16f MIB. Furthermore, the paper defines an horizontal
abstraction layer, hiding the WiMAX equipments specific functionalities from
the network control plane, thus providing robustness and vendor independency.
In order to verify the performance of the proposed framework, a WiMAX testbed
has been installed, and a set of measurements have been made, showing that the
proposed system ensures a quick resource allocation, even for a large number
of simultaneous resource reservation requests.
