WiMAX

Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access

The term WiMAX has become synonymous with the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) 802.16 suite of standards. These define the radio or air interface within two broad radio bands 2GHz to 11GHz and 10GHz - 66GHz. It is anticipated that WiMAX will be used initially as a backhaul connection with other technologies such as Wi-Fi being used to cover the ?final mile?. However, there have been a number of other market segments identified for WiMAX including Broadband Access in rural / low density areas in addition to providing an alternative to more traditional broadband technologies such as DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) and Cable. WiMAX, although standardized through the IEEE, is promoted by the WiMAX Forum.
