IEEE 802.16 is an air interface specification for wireless broadband
access.  IEEE 802.16 has specified multiple service-specific
Convergence Sublayers for transmitting upper-layer protocols.  The
Packet CS (Packet Convergence Sublayer) is used for the transport of
all packet-based protocols such as the Internet Protocol (IP) and
IEEE 802.3 (Ethernet).  The IP-specific part of the Packet CS enables
the transport of IPv4 packets directly over the IEEE 802.16 Media
Access Control (MAC) layer.

This document specifies the frame format, the Maximum Transmission
Unit (MTU), and the address assignment procedures for transmitting
IPv4 packets over the IP-specific part of the Packet Convergence
Sublayer of IEEE 802.16.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This document is a product of the IP over IEEE 802.16 Networks Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
