WiMAX: Applications by Syed A. Ahson, Mohammad Ilyas

By Syed A. Ahson, Mohammad Ilyas

Because the call for for broadband companies maintains to develop around the world, conventional recommendations, resembling electronic cable and fiber optics, are usually tricky and costly to enforce, particularly in rural and distant components. The rising WiMAX process satisfies the growing to be desire for top data-rate functions corresponding to voiceover IP, video conferencing, interactive gaming, and multimedia streaming. WiMAX deployments not just serve residential and firm clients yet is additionally deployed as a backhaul for wireless hotspots or 3G mobile towers. via supplying reasonable instant broadband entry, the expertise of WiMAX will revolutionize broadband communications within the constructed global and bridge the electronic divide in constructing international locations. a part of the WiMAX guide, this quantity specializes in the purposes of WiMAX. The booklet describes the logical structure of IEEE 802.16, introduces a few of the major IEEE 802.16 kinfolk criteria, compares WiMAX to wireless, and experiences the feasibility of helping VoIP over WiMAX. It additionally appears to be like on the residential use of WiMAX in addition to the concepts of utilizing WiMAX in distant locales and rural groups. additionally, the publication examines the backhaul specifications of a big fastened instant community and the matter of centralized routing and scheduling for IEEE 802.16 mesh networks. With the innovative know-how of WiMAX, the lives of many will definitely increase, thereby resulting in higher monetary empowerment.

16e also enhances the network performance in fixed environment by using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing access (OFDMA). tex 16/7/2007 9: 47 Overview of WiMAX Standards and Applications Page 25 25 bands suitable for mobility must be below 6 GHz. 16-2004 so that hardware/software updates are required to implement it. 16e has lower throughput (up to 15 Mbps), but it supports both hard and soft handoffs. Hard handoffs are based on breakbefore-make concept, which leads to high latency while soft handoffs use make-before-break approach to minimize the delay.

WiMAX is one of the most popular BWA technologies today, which aims to provide highspeed broadband wireless access for wireless metropolitan area networks (WMANs). 16, commonly referred to as WiMAX, is a specification for broadband wireless communication standards developed for WMANs, which supports fixed, nomadic, portable, and mobile broadband accesses and enables interoperability and coexistence of BWA systems from different manufacturers in a cost-effective way. Compared to the complicated wired network, a WiMAX system only consists of two parts: the WiMAX base station (BS) and WiMAX subscriber station (SS), also referred to as customer premise equipments.
