WiMAX

WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a standard based technology aimed at providing wireless data over long distances in a variety of ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called WirelessMAN. The name "WiMAX" was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformance and interoperability of the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL". The current WiMAX incarnation, Mobile WiMAX, is based upon IEEE Standard 802.16e approved in December 2005. It is a supplement to the IEEE Std 802.16-2004.
