WiMAX is one of wireless broadband transmission standards, which is based on IEEE 802.16 serious. Its signal coverage, UL/DL rate, and bandwidth efficiency are better than traditional ones. It can be the last mile for where the cable and DSL network cannot reach. Because of its characteristic of broadband access and mobility, wireless applications become more enhanced and various. E-Police Patrolling System is one of the wireless applications over WiMAX network. It can help commander monitor any event in front of police officers, and talk to officers via VoIP. In contrast to traditional approach where police on patrol can only give voice back to commander. E-Police Patrolling System can provide both audio and video information of the scene. According to this, commander can give instructions more efficiently and clearly. In this paper, architecture of device and the working scenario of E-Police Patrolling System are going to be presented.
