LTE and WiMAX Comparison

The communication industry has been formulating new standards to efficiently deliver high speed broadband mobile access in a single air interface and network architecture at low cost to operators and end users. Two standards, IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) and 3GPP LTE are leading the pack towards forming the next-generation of mobile network standards.
The WiMAX (IEEE 802.16 standard) comes from IEEE family of protocols and extends the wireless access from the Local Area Network (typically based on the IEEE 802.11 standard) to Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN). It uses a new physical layer radio access technology called OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) for uplink and downlink.
The LTE, on the other hand evolves from the Third-generation technology which is based on WCDMA and defines the long term evolution of the 3GPP UMTS/HSPA cellular technology. The specifications of these efforts are formally known as the evolved UMTS terrestrial radio access (E-UTRA) and evolved UMTS terrestrial radio access network (E-UTRAN), commonly referred to by the 3GPP project LTE.
