    The WiMAX IEEE 802.16 standard is capable of providing very high data rates over large areas. This wireless broadband access technology is expected to open new market segments and bring a wide range of new applications and services. The WiMAX integration into the existing mobile network environment currently draws a lot of attention. In this paper, we discuss the integration of IEEE 802.16e into the GSM-based 2.5G and 3G mobile networks, which may be promising especially for users in non-urban areas. More specifically, we concentrate on the integration at the radio access level of the UMTS and GPRS networks.
