WiMAX Wimax and wifi were generated independently each other by different standards groups and or different target frequency bands. In addition, the goals were different: Mobile wimax was intended to offer a wireless access means to wide area networks, whereas WiFi was intended to function as a wireless extension to the existing local area networks.

The IEEE 802.16 standard has been developed by the IEEE 802.16 WG on broadband wireless access (BWA) since 1999. This standard was initially designed for fixed wireless services and was expanded to support mobility feature in IEEE 802.16e.
