Wimax Research Papers
The idea that access to information opens doors to wider economic and social development opportunities is not new. Jungnickel, “Coordinated Multipoint: Concepts, Performance, and Field Trial Results,” IEEE Communications Magazine, Vol. Liu, “A Comparative Study of Wi MAX and LTE as the Next Generation Mobile Enterprise Network,” Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Advanced Communication Technology (ICACT), Gangwon-do, South Korea, 13-16 February 2011, pp. comparing developed and developing countries or regions; within countries (the domestic digital divide); and most importantly the divide between rural and urban, well educated or poorly educated populations or poor and rich citizens.Despite the various parameters and selected criteria (e.g.And even if such limitations can be overcome using other complementary backbones or equipments (optical fibers or microwaves links, remote switching units.etc), the extra cost of these new equipments, of their deployment and their operation directly impacts the business model. So, both the “Demand and Cost’’ factors are the major barriers to the broadband access as identified by (ITU World Telecommunications Development report 2003). The various usage scenarios to illustrate the ability of Wi MAX to address different applications are given in sections IV and V. Wi MAX stands for “World Interoperability for Microwave Access’’.It is a broadband wireless technology that supports fixed, nomadic, portable and mobile access.Two wireless technologies, Wi MAX based on IEEE standards and LTE standardized by 3GPP, are two competing technologies, nevertheless, are very technically similar. This competition started with the advent of their pre-4G versions (802.16e for Mobile Wi MAX and 3GPP release 8 for LTE) and continued with the advent of their 4G versions (Wi MAX 2.0 based on IEEE the advantage of LTE. Nontechnical factors of commercial and historical nature which might also advantage one technology over the other one are also explored. Finally, current activities in the standardization of both Wi MAX and LTE are presented with a perspective on the prospects of both technologies.
