Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) Forum

Overview: The Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) was formed in 2001 by communication, component, and equipment companies to promote and certify interoperability of broadband wireless access equipment that conforms to the IEEE 802.16 and ETSI HIPERMAN standards. WiMax initiatives include: supporting the IEEE 802.16 standard; proposing and promoting access profiles for the IEEE 802.16 standard; certifying interoperability levels both in network and the cell; and promoting use of broadband wireless access overall. WiMAX also promotes specifying minimum air-interface performance between various vendors' products and certifying products that meet those performance benchmarks.
