ABSTRACT
Lots of attention is attracted by the WIMAX, recently in the Telecommunication community including researchers, Product developers and service providers. Numerous papers have been published on various design issues of WIMAX networks. Since the issues being discussed is usually ahead of product availability, most of these issues require simulation. It is important to have some common features among these models so that there models so that there results can be compared. Therefore the application working group of WIMAX has developed a standard simulation methodology that describes the key feature to be simulated and the various parametric values can be used to obtain simulation Several commercial and public WIMAX simulation models this system level methodology is being used. This article presents the discussion of key features, uses and network configurations of WIMAX ..

INTRODUCTION
In today's twenty first century, Telecommunications networking and services are changing in a rapid way to support next generation Internet (NGI) user environment. Wireless networks will play an important and useful role in NGI. Wireless broadband networks are being increasingly deployed and used in the last mile for extending or enhancing Internet connectivity for fixed and/or mobile clients located on the edge of the wired network.
With high data rate, large network coverage, strong QoS capabilities and cheap network
The privilege steps to bridge the divide have been hindered by a number of factors, but maximum by infrastructural and cost demands of the current technology used. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) comes at a time when the need to communicate is at its highest. Designed to provide throughput similar to that of wired

    Upgrading to an optimized WLAN architecture, using 802.11n technology, provides Highbrow Ed with a scalable, efficient, high-performing wireless network. An optimized WLAN architecture combines the advantages of central management and addresses the limitations of having a central wireless switch. Optimized WLAN consists of intelligent Access Points (Aps) and a WLAN controller. The APs forward traffic and enforce security and prioritization policies, while the WLAN controller centrally manages and controls all APs. The APs dispatch all traffic directly from source to destination without requiring a detour to the controller.…

    When it comes to communications, broadcasting signals, and staying within guidelines governed by the FCC and the IEEE here in the United States a system of standards have been developed in order to help the communications and information industry streamline their efforts to work together instead of against each other. Some people feel this is a good practice and conductive toward the progress and growth of technology. Other people feel these standards take away from the freedom of creativity and the ability of companies to produce their own standards and products which may win over popularity with the general public in turn becoming a De-facto standard.…

    The two most important phenomena impacting telecommunications over the past decade have been the explosive parallel growth of both the internet and mobile telephone services. The internet brought the benefits of data communications to the masses with email, the Web, and eCommerce; while mobile service has enabled "follow-me-anywhere/always on" telephony. The internet helped accelerate the trend from voice-centric to data-centric networking. Data already exceeds voice traffic and the data share continues to grow. Now, these two worlds are converging. To realize the full potential of this convergence, however, we need broadband access connections. What precisely constitutes "broadband" is, of course, a moving target, but at a minimum, it should support data rates in the hundreds of kilobits per second as opposed to the 50Kbps enjoyed by 80% of the internet users in the US who still rely on dial-up modems over wireline circuits or the even more anemic 10-20Kbps typically supported by the current generation of available mobile data services. While the need for broadband wireless internet access is widely accepted, there remains great uncertainty and disagreement as to how the…

    order to highlight that which technology will be better to build a wireless access infrastructure. The first part of the paper examines the both of these wireless technology in order to understand both technologies and their underlying concepts. Then, I have discussed some key characteristics to compare the both of these technologies. The last part concludes and presents a conclusion of which will be the best technology to build a wireless access infrastructure. II. OVERVIEW OF THE CANDIDATE TECHNOLOGIES. 2.1 Wi-Fi The dream to network PCs and other devices without the cost and complexity of cable infrastructures has driven the rapid growth in the wireless market over the last few years.Wi-Fi is one of the wireless technology which appeared early in the wireless market. Wi-Fi is based on the IEEE 802.11 wireless local area network (WLAN) specification. Actually it was designed to be used indoors at close range for example home user and office environment. The main goal of Wi-Fi technology is to provide service for mobile computing device like laptop. But recently it is used for more services for example consumer device such as televisions, digital cameras, and DVD players. A user with a mobile computing device such as a laptop, cell phone, or PDA which is Wi-Fi enabled can connect to the global Internet when it is within in range of an access point. The region which is covered by one or more access points is called a hotspot. Hotspots can range from a single room to thousand of square feet’s of overlapping hotspots. Wi-Fi can also be used to create a mesh network. Wi-Fi also allows connectivity in peer-to-peer (wireless ad-hoc network) mode, which enables devices to connect directly with each other [1]. This connectivity mode is useful in consumer electronics and gaming applications [1]. Wi-Fi products can use different radio frequencies [2]: • The 802.11a standard…
