WIMAX signal throughput and area coverage range are the most important factors that will affect the quality of broadband access services in mobile systems. This paper presents a comprehensive study of frequency analysis for path loss on mobile WIMAX presented to achieve large throughput and wide coverage to a big number of users. In this paper we have calculated the path loss values based on the variation of WIMAX standard frequency in the range of 2 to 6 GHz, and a fixed distance of 5 km from the transmit station to the receive station in urban, suburban, rural and free space environments. The paper discusses and implements Okumura, Hata, Cost-231, Ericsson, Erceg, Walfish, Ecc-33, Lee and the simplified free space path loss models. All the models applied in this paper are used to predict the propagation loss for WIMAX.
