Provide high-speed Internet access to home and business subscribers, without wires. 10-66 GHz and sub 11 GHz Legacy voice systems Voice over IP TCP/IP Applications with different QoS requirements goals Slide 9: WiMAX is targeted for longer range Metropolitan Area (indoor & outdoor) Different from Wi-Fi, which is primarily targeted for Local Area Network (indoor) applications. The main distinction between WiFi and WiMAX is speed and coverage distances: WiFi has a typical bandwidth of 2MBps whereas WiMAX can have a bandwidth of up to 75MBps. The coverage distances also differ to a great extent. A WiFi hotspot typically covers a few hundred feet radius (fraction of a kilometer) whereas a WiMAX can practically cover up to a distance of 10 kilometers.

Based on IEEE 802.16 WiMAX : 3 WiMAX WiMAX, in fact, comes in two forms, a so called µfixed WiMAX¶ and a µmobile WiMAX¶. WiMAX in its fixed form is seen as a possible alternative to expensive cable and fibre deployment. It is faster to deploy and less expensive and it also offers operators more flexibility in terms of deployment time frame and possible installation areas. 3G or other cellular network operators could see this as a potential substitute or as a complement to their cellular product.
