Guide to Securing WiMAX Wireless Communications

1.5 MB | 3 files |  DOC, PDF

Originally designed for "last-mile" service, IEEE 802.16-standard technology has developed as a key platform for WMAN coverage. This tutorial will get you up to speed on the WiMAX standard and its applications.

WiMAX technology is a wireless metropolitan area network (WMAN) communications technology that is largely based on the wireless interface defined in the

IEEE 802.16 standard. The industry trade association, the WiMAX Forum, coined the WiMAX trademark and defines the precise content and scope of WiMAX technology through technical specifications that it creates and publishes.

The original purpose of IEEE 802.16 technology was to provide last-mile broadband wireless access as an alternative to cable, digital subscriber line or T1 service. Developments in the IEEE 802.16 standard shifted the technology's focus toward a more cellular-like, mobile architecture to serve a broader market.

Today, WiMAX technology continues to adapt to market demands and provide enhanced user mobility. This document discusses WiMAX wireless communication topologies, components, certifications, security features and related security concerns.
