In the last years, much effort has been applied to study Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). As part of this effort, the IEEE 802.16 Standard for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks specifies a mesh mode operation for WiMAX networks, opening possibilities for real mesh networks deployment. Several technical aspects of the physical and medium access layers of the standard have been studied, although, there is no definition on how this architecture will handle billing aspects and paid access. In this dissertation, the existing solutions for this question are analyzed and we propose a new architecture for billing users in IEEE 802.16 mesh networks.
