Another all-in-one technological concept to serve your day-to-day demands all put together. Actually, WiMAX stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. As widely known WiMAX enables the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to ADSL and Cable broadband.
WiMAX also has every potential to replace a number of existing world communication infrastructures. In the fixed wireless region, it can replace the telephone copper wire networks, cable TV coaxial cable infrastructure and in cellular zone, WiMAX has the capacity to fill-in the place of existing cellular networks.
The much important thing about it is you get all its services cheaper comparing to the services from established technologies like ADSL, Cable, and Fiber Optics etc.
Wi-Fi and WiMax
The working system of WiMAX is much different from that of Wi-Fi, which is described as internet Hot Spots. WiMax is potentially better in terms of coverage, self-installation, power consumption, and bandwidth efficiency while comparing to Wi-Fi. The conception is capable of full mobility support. It has broken away many of the Wi-Fi limitations by providing increased bandwidth and stronger encryption. It provides connectivity between two network terminals by completely avoiding the use of wires and cables.
Reach of WiMAX
The magnitude of WiMAX and its bandwidth make it suitable for wide possible usages.
• It is a powerful wireless alternative to ADSL and cable broadband access.
• Can connect existing Wi-Fi hotspots with each other and to rest of the Internet
• It can provide high-quality mobile communication services. WiMax wireless broadband and WiMax mobiles service probably work within a local loop.
Broadband Internet in WiMax
Many cable and telephone companies are considering installation of WiMAX to extend their services where they are not reachable, thus providing users the complete broadband. So, in areas where physical cable or telephone networks are not feasible until now, WiMAX will be a viable alternative for broadband access.
Today, WiMax service packages are available in indoor and outdoor models from their providers. Self-install indoor models are convenient but the user needs to be significantly closer to the WiMax base stations. WiMax working indoor are comparably similar to an ADSL or cable broadband. Related to distance, WiMax outdoor model allow users to access it from much further away from the WiMax base station.
Still WiMAX have some similar characters of ADSL. One is that WiMAX shares bandwidth between users in a given radio. So if there are many active users in a particular sphere, each user will get a shared bandwidth.
Mobile Telephony in WiMax
It is highly possible to use WiMAX with existing cellular networks. WiMAX aerials can share a cell tower without doing any changes in the function of existing cellular arrangement. Companies providing cellular services are evaluating WiMAX for means of increasing the bandwidth to provide users with array of data-intensive services. As a result it will cut down the cost of the cellular service providers thus triggering users made available with wide services at low cost. WiMAX can so effectively enhance wireless communications in an inexpensive, decentralized and installation-friendly manner.
However, it may look WiMax to be a futuristic aspect. But how broadband technologies like ADSL or Cable raised within just few years to existence, WiMax too is to play a key role in serving you before long. It is going to be a world-shattering replacement of all the existing form of telecommunications by WiMax for your most comfort utilization.
