The article reports on the implementation of IEEE 802.16e, the mobile version of WiMAX. WiMAX urgently needs a capability such as the soon-to-be-completed IEEE 802.21 standard for Media Independent Handoff (MIH). Fixed wireless access is already in service with 802.16d in most nations worldwide, whereas 802.16e will provide handoff. Other capabilities of WiMAX are also cited.
