RFC 5121, "Transmission of IPv6 via the IPv6 Convergence Sublayer over IEEE 802.16 Networks", February 2008

Section 6.3 says:

The Len parameter has a size of 11 bits.
Hence, the total MAC PDU size is 2048 bytes.

It should say:

The Len parameter has a size of 11 bits.
Hence, the total MAC PDU size is 2047 bytes.

Notes:

There are 11 bits for indicating the size of the MAC PDU, thus according to me this indicates a maximum size of (binary) 111 1111 1111, which equals (decimal) 2047 (2**11 - 1).
The maximum of 2047 is also cited in the book "Fundamentals of WiMAX" by Jeffrey G. Andrews, Arunabha Ghosh and Rias Muhamed on page 48: "The maximum frame length is 2,047 bytes, which is represented by 11 bits in the GMH."
