WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) was the first standard to adopt double-binary turbo codes for forward error correction. The codes were introduced in IEEE 802.16-2004, and later support was extended in IEEE 802.16-2009. The throughputs of WiMAX systems are typically much less than 100 Mbit/s. Usage of the turbo codes is optional.
