Wireless technologies are able to provide mobility and portability that makes it more attractive as compared to wired technologies. WIMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a telecommunications protocol that provides fixed and fully mobile internet access. Wired network refers to interoperable implementations of the IEEE 802.3 and WIMAX which refers to interoperable implementations of the IEEE 802.16 wireless-networks standard. A LAN (wired) is a data transmission system designed to provide location dependent network access between computing devices by using a cable infrastructure. The radio range and data rate of WIMAX are much better then Wired network but, on the basis of cost WIMAX is expensive.
