An Overview of Various Security Aspects for WiMAX Network Technology
WiMAX, Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is an emerging wireless communication system that provides broadband access with large-scale coverage. As a cost-effective solution, multihop communication is becoming more and more important to WiMAX systems. To deploy successfully multihop WiMAX networks, security is one of the major challenges that must be addressed. Another important aspect is how to support different services and applications in WiMAX networks. New ICT and e-Learning strategies and advances in Wireless standards and technologies particularly in the areas of WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) and mobile computing can help to make the digital divide in education and research fields. This technology aim to provide low-cost, high-performance wireless access to residential and business applications.
