Abstract: IEEE 802.16 protocols for metropolitan broadband wireless access systems have been standardized recently. According to the standard, a subscriber station can deliver bandwidth request messages to a base station by numerous methods. This paper provides both the simulation and analytical models for the investigation of specified random access method, which is compared with centralized polling and station- grouping mechanisms. Based on the assumptions of Bernoulli request arrival process and ideal channel conditions, the mean delay of a request transmission is evaluated for varying number of transmission opportunities and different arrival rates.
