WiMAX
The purpose of WiMAX is to promote deployment of broadband wireless access networks by using a global standard and certifying interoperability of products and technologies.

Principles
WiMAX comprises of industry leaders who are committed to the open interoperability of all products used for broadband wireless access.

  • Support IEEE 802.16 standard
  • Propose and promote access profiles for the IEEE 802.16 standard
  • Certify interoperability levels both in network and the cell
  • Achieve global acceptance
  • Promote use of broadband wireless access overall


Motivation
WiMAX intends to foster a more competitive BWA marketplace by specifying minimum air-interface performance between various vendors' products and certifying products that meet those performance benchmarks:

  • For network operators this means interoperability between equipment vendors
  • For equipment vendors this means fewer product variants
  • For component vendors this means larger series
  • For end-users this means faster and cheaper access which is more widely available
