Requirement of portable, mobile and high speed connectivity for internet access is increasing day-by-day. WiMAX will be playing an important role in the Broadband Wireless Technology (BWT) sector, since it is more cost-effective and easy to install technology. It is a fixed Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) system based on the IEEE 802.16 standards and will be used to provide \"Last mile\" access to the broadband and Internet access services.
