Wireless Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is one of the most familiar broadband wireless access technologies that support multimedia transmission. IEEE802.16 Medium Access Control (MAC) covers a large area for bandwidth allocation and Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms for various types of applications. Nevertheless, the standard lacks a MAC scheduling algorithm that has a multi-dimensional Technological objective of satisfying QoS requirements of the users, maximizing channel utilization while ensuring fairness among users. So we are proposing a novel Priority based Scheduling Algorithm using Fuzzy logic that addresses these aspects. The initial results show that maximum channel utilization is achieved with a negligible increment in processing time while keeping the priority intact.
