The development of broadband wireless access technologies in recent years was the result of growing demand for mobile Internet and wireless multimedia applications. Mobile communication plays a most important role in telecommunications industry. Through a common wide-area radio-access technology and flexible network architecture WiMAX and LTE has enabled convergence of mobile and fixed broadband networks.
