The IEEE looks to 802.16m to turn WiMax into gigabit wireless technology: WiMax came out of 802.16, with what’s typically called fixed WiMax being 802.16-2004, and mobile WiMax being 802.16-2005 (actually comprising fixed, nomadic, and mobile profiles). 802.16m would potentially comply with 4G requirements, allowing a convergence of WiMax and cellular standards. The new standard wouldn’t be finalized until late 2009.
