The article outlines the requirements for the development of specific test procedures and equipment for WiMAX, a technology for fixed, nomadic and mobile applications that has the potential to deliver broadband wireless access. The technology uses orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) as the modulation scheme. Three techniques for achieving high data throughput include large bandwidth systems, high order modulation and OFDMA.
