    Finding detailed information on WiMAX, from fundamentals to future directions, is challenging at best. While almost everyone engaged in wireless communications, whether they are academics or professionals, has accumulated a variety of information on WiMAX over time, a comprehensive, single-source would be invaluable to have. The WiMAX Handbook is that resource, presenting what you need to know about this innovative technology.
