Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), which is also known as IEEE 802.16 standard supports broadband wireless access networks. WiMAX is an example of infrastructure based wireless network where mobile hosts can communicate through some access points. When the host changes its position and comes out of the scope of an access point, it connects with a new access point and resumes the connection. WiMAX has many advantages over wide coverage area and also aims to support the high data rates, QoS, long transmission range & low deployment cost as compared to cellular and Wi-Fi network.
