Abstract: Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks based on IEEE 802.16d/e standards are soon to be deployed in several countries. However, there is lack of published literature with results from actual test¬beds. This paper introduces the work done in the EU Sixth Framework Programme Project WEIRD to design and set up WiMAX testbeds in four EU countries. We describe the method¬ology followed, detail our implementation and present results from the testbeds, as deployed in the first phase of WEIRD. The testbeds are used to demonstrate how WiMAX technology can be used to extend the connectivity of the pan-European data com¬munications network (GEANT2) to isolated and impervious ar¬eas and, furthermore, to assure end-to-end quality of service to novel applications.
