In this paper, we exploit the potential of positioning technologies in wireless broadband communications, which are based on worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX), in particular the IEEE802.16* standards. By utilizing the additional features in WiMAX including multiple input multiple output (MIMO), adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), beamforming, relay station and power control, we believe that the features can be used for enhancing the location estimation accuracy in location services.
