Wireless Max or WiMAX, where WiMAX stands on Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is one of the latest technologies in the wireless world. The main goal of WiMAX is to deliver wireless communications with quality of service in a secured environment. Unlike wireless LANs, WiMAX networks incorporate several Qualities of Service (QoS) mechanisms at the Media Access Control (MAC) level for guaranteed services for data, voice and video. Its mobility feature makes it different from the other IEEE 802.16 protocols which was based on static WiMAX and provided the Wireless communication at fixed locations.
