GPRS access technology is not well-adapted for providing a data service to rural areas where there exist very localized demands for service. Under these circumstances, WiMax could be a better solution for providing access. This paper deals with the way to interface a WiMax network, based on a point to point configuration, to a GSM/GPRS core network, using a PC equipped with a linux kernel modified in order to add a new protocol under IP layer.
