Broadband access technology has signiﬁcant inﬂuences in the telecommunication industry. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is a broadband wireless technology which brings broadband experience to a wireless context. There are two different types of broadband wireless services. One is ﬁxed wireless broadband which is similar to the traditional ﬁxed line broadband access technology like DSL or cable modem but using wireless as a medium of transmission. Another type is broadband wireless known as mobile broadband which has additional functionality of portability, mobility and nomad city. The IEEE 802.16 family WiMAX is designed to accommodate both fixed and mobile broadband application. WiMAX promises "to solve the last mile problem which refers to the expense and time needed to connect individual homes and oﬂices to trunk route for communications. WiMAX also offer higher peak data rates and greater ﬂexibility than 3G networks and Wi-Fi. This thesis is provides the analysis of the broadband wireless access (BWA) technology with a focus on WiMAX and compare it with the other wireless technology like Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and third-generation (3G).
