This paper addresses the design, analysis and system performance of a WiMax (worldwide interoperability for microwave access) which is developed in the greater region of Athens. It is based on PMP (point to multipoint) and provides broadband wireless services in fixed locations. As the radio communications systems are easy and fast deployment comparing to wire-line, the proposed system will increase the broadband penetration in Athens. Because of the variform terrain morphology it is essential to use a GIS (geographic information system) to explore aspects in network planning additional with the use of a suitable software palling tool. Throughput measurements were performed on an experimental WiMax base station, in order to verify its performance.
