This article discusses options in the implementation of RF in 802.16, which aims to enable affordable high-bandwidth wireless broadband access to a broad base of customers. The design of an 802.16 RF system naturally varies between the customer premises equipment (CPE) and base transceiver station (BTS). A super heterodyne system is used in the BTS and CPE for the receive and transmit signal chains. A different chipset is required to support the different frequency bands to be used. For baseband processing, a more integrated CPE approach is used, while higher-performance mixed-signal and digital processing is used for the BTS.
