WiMAX or Wi-Fi: The Next Generation Technology for Wireless Networking Infrastructure
Today on one hand wireless is emerging as the technology that is giving shape to more convenient and cost effective world on the other hand it demands wireless technology to expand from single home to whole world. This paper presents a comparison of the existing wireless technology Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11) and WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e/m), with respect to technology which provides a better solution to build a wireless access infrastructure. On based of different parameters the technology is measured. Conclusion of the paper is to state which technology is best suited and cost effective solution to end users.
