IEEE 802.16/WiMAX is one of the most promising technologies for broadband wireless access, both for fixed and mobile use. Many application scenarios have been studied so far, including wireless local loop, wireless DSL and as an alternative to 3G in developing countries. This paper presents a WiMAX based end-to-end architecture and novel applications running on top of mobile WiMAX, to extend the European research network Geant 2. The scenarios include monitoring of impervious areas, fire prevention, tele-medicine and tele-hospitalization, all to be developed in the framework of the European collaboration project named WEIRD
