Description A worldwide demand for high speed broadband wireless systems across commercial and residential regions is emerging rapidly due to the increasing reliance on web for informa-tion, business, entertainment and new upcoming high bandwidth intensive or real-time applications. The IEEE 802.16 WirelessMAN standard which has emerged as Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) solution, is promising to meet all such requirements and becoming the most popular way for wireless communication. The IEEE 802.16 advantages includes variable and high data rate, last mile wireless access, point to multipoint communication, large frequency range and QoS for various types of applications. Despite of the above advantages, IEEE 802.16 WirelessMAN lacks in MAC scheduling architecture in uplink as well as downlink direction. Efficient scheduling design is left for the designers and thus providing QoS for IEEE 802.16 BWA system is challenge for system developers. We propose Weighted Fair Queue (WFQ) based MAC scheduling architecture for IEEE 802.16 WirelessMANs in both uplink and downlink direction. Our scheduling architecture accommodates parameters like traffic priority, minimum reserved bandwidth
