Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is a wireless communication technology that aims to provide wireless data over long distances through various methods as an alternative to cable and digital subscriber line from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. This study is devoted to designing a WiMAX network in Karak City in Jordan, with broadband access insurance for wireless Internet. Moreover, we examined the basic procedures for building a model that simulates a realistic WiMAX network system through four scenarios using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol and Voice over Internet Protocol applications. Finally, the structure and visualization of the basic and additional elements of the WiMAX network are discussed. The additional elements are responsible for the administration, management and maintenance of a network. This study also identifies several approaches to determine the number of base stations required to cover exposed and densely populated areas. Results show that the fourth scenario outweighs the first three scenarios in terms of throughput, transmission delay, and load data. Experiments were conducted using the wireless network simulator OPNET 14.5
