Mobile WiMAX Broadband Conclusion

INTRODUCTION
There are basically three different options:
BROADBAND ACCESS
WIFI ACCESS DIAL-UP ACCESS

The main problems with broadband access are that it is pretty expensive & it doesnt reach all areas.
The main problem with WIFI is that hot spots are

very small, so coverage is sparse.

New Technology WiMAX


This new Technology would provide: That is less expensive than cable Much easier to extend to rural areas Broad coverage like cell phone networks. WiMAX is a wireless digital communications system also known as IEEE 802.16.

Working
There are two parts: WiMAX Tower WiMAX Receiver
WiMAX stations connect directly to the internet with a wired connection.

TYPES OF WIMAX
FIXED WIMAX:
Fixed WIMAX

deployments do not cater for hand off between base stations, therefore the service provider cannot offer mobility.

MOBILE WIMAX:
Mobile WIMAX

implementations can be used to deliver both fixed SAMSUNG MOBILE WIMAX DEVICES & mobile services.

ADVANTAGES

Bandwidth Flexibility Pricing + Contract Flexibility Quick Installation Interpenetration

DISADVANTAGES
WiMAX can operate at higher bitrates or over longer

distances but not both. Omni directional antennas are used.

BROADBAND ACCESS
Many companies are closely examining WIMAX for last-mile" connectivity at high data rates. The resulting competitions may bring lower pricing for both home & business customers, or bring broadband access to places where it has been economically unavailable.

FUTURE
Anywhere, Anytime, Connectivity
Cost Effective High speed of Broadband service

COMPARISON B/W WIMAX & WIFI

WIMAX
WiMAX is a long

WiFi
WiFi is shorter range

range system. system. WiMAX provides WiFi is more services analogous to analogous to a cell phone. cordless phone. It uses a mechanism WiFi has introduced based on setting up a quality of service connections between mechanism similar the base station & to fixed Ethernet, user device. where packet can receive different priorities based on their tags.

Mobile WIMAX Broadband

Conclusion
Within five years, we expect WiMAX to be the dominant technology for wireless networking. By that time it will be fully mobile, as well as providing lowcost, fixed broadband access that will open up regions where internet access has no far not been practical.
