2.4 Application of IEEE 802.16 based network:

IEEE 802.16 supports ATM, IPv4, IPv6, Ethernet and Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) services [1]. SO, it can provide a rich choice of service possibilities to voice and data network service providers. It can be used for a wide selection of wireless broadband connection and solutions.

Cellular Backhaul: IEEE 802.16 wireless technology can be an excellent choice for back haul for commercial enterprises such as hotspots as well as point­to­point back haul applications due to its robust bandwidth and long range.

Residential Broadband: Practical limitations like long distance and lack off return channel prohibit many potential broadband customers reaching DSL and cable technologies [3]. IEEE 802.16 can ill the gaps in cable and DSL coverage.

Underserved areas: In many rural areas, especially in developing countries, there is no existence of wired infrastructure. IEEE 802.16 can be a better solution to provide communication services to those areas using fixed CPE and high gained antenna.

Always Best Connected: As IEEE 802.16e supports mobility [8], so the mobile user in the business areas can access high speed services through their IEEE 802.16/WiMAX enabled handheld devices like PDA, Pocket PC and smart phone.
