    The main application area for WiMAX is backhauling of RMUs, data concentrators or distributed energy resources (DER). Single prosumers could technically be served, but it is economically reasonable only in selected cases.

    WiMAX (worldwide interoperability for microwave access) is a standards-based telecommunications protocol (IEEE 802.16 series) that provides both fixed and mobile broadband connectivity. The advanced point-to-multipoint technology is field-proven and deployed globally. In the recent past, certain manufacturers have evolved the system for the requirements of specific vertical markets like e.g. Oil & Gas or Electric Utilities. Differing from telecommunication carrier oriented systems, these implementations support special features like e.g. asymmetric prioritization of uplink traffic, layer 2 based traffic (multicast / IEC 61850 GOOSE), redundancy options, as well as economic system scaling fitting also for smaller, privately owned regional or local networks.

    Beside the application requirements it is important to assess regional conditions like area topology and availability of radio spectrum. Professional radio network planning and network engineering are mandatory when setting up WiMAX networks.
