This chapter discusses the problem of providing call admission control (CAC), scheduling and band reservation for wireless networks. It presents the importance of such procedures focusing mainly on WiMax mesh mode networks. The chapter also classifies some of the most known proposals presented in the literature to solve the scheduling and CAC problems for this kind of network. Differently of some other standards, in the IEEE 802.16 standard the scheduling and CAC procedures are mandatory. No node in the network can communicate, even in the mesh mode, without having the transmission previously scheduled. In this way scheduling becomes one of the most important processes to achieve spectral efficiency and, in consequence, to increase the network capacity.
