High data rate services, multimedia applications and, in general, high quality information streams are now-a-days demanded by a larger and larger number of consumers. Wireless communications are expanding their field of action since they allow to obtain performances comparable to the cabled solutions, but with less costs in infrastructures and in the network deploying procedures. WiMAX technology is considered one of the most prominent solutions capable to provide a broadband wireless access in metropolitan areas. In this paper, the technique of WiMAX is considered as well as protocol IEEE 802.16 is presented to disclose working of WiMAX technology.
