WiMAX which represents World Interoperability for Microwave Access is a major part of broadband wireless network having IEEE 802.16 standard provides innovative fixed as well as mobile platform for broadband internet access anywhere in anytime. This thesis provides the detail about the two main applications of WiMAX which are fixed WiMAX and Mobile WiMAX. Fixed WiMAX 802.16 delivers point to multipoint broadband wireless access to our homes and offices. Whereas Mobile WiMAX gives full mobility of cellular networks at higher broadband speeds than other broadband networks like Wi-Fi. Both applications of WiMAX are designed in a proper network planning which is helpful to offer better throughput broadband wireless connectivity at a much lower cost.
