With the tremendous increase in wireless technology and wireless services in the last few decades has put forward the need of an efficient wireless technology that provides high data rates. WiMAX is a promising wireless transmission technology that offers both fixed and mobile broadband wireless accesses, based on methods defined in 802.16 IEEE standards. IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) standard presents specifications for fixed Line of sight (LOS) communication in the range of 10-66GHz (802.16c), as well as for fixed, portable, Non-LOS communication in the range of 2-11GHz (802.16a, 802.16d).
