This letter deals with coding and multiplexing strategies for DL/UL MAP transmission in IEEE 802.16m. Separate coding gives a better choice against the joint coding due to the individual users' link adaptation gain. As a multiplexing option, frequency-domain multiplexing outperforms time-domain one in the system-level performance thanks to its flexible power sharing capability between overhead channels and user traffic channels. Overall system-wide performance results are presented with the system level simulation for the various options.
