IEEE 802.16m technology is expected to provide high speed packet data service over wireless. Due to the large amount of data to be processed over a short period of time, an efficient MAC processing in the modem is crucial. Since the MAC processing algorithm has optimization limitations, we focus on a data flow optimization in the system level design, so that the number of external memory accesses is minimized. Experimental results show that our approach results in an up to sixteen times faster IEEE 802.16m modem system.
