WiMax (Emerging Technology)Introduction
It is a set of protocols which provide fixed and dynamic internet access. Started with a speed of of 40 Mbps and now it is capable of delivering up-to 1 GB/sec. The name WiMax was given by the community who were using a the forum and were also the developers of this technology.It was believed that this will be the next generation technology which can impart the pinnacle of mobile internet access.
Today, this technology has given a new look to the remote areas, where internet or the global connectivity was just a dream. Not only this, the speed is relatively high as compared to the modern dial up or 3g connections. When we look at its history, it shows that this technology has upgraded itself in every terms, take it speed or the remote area connectivity. WiMAX belongs to the IEEE 802.16 family of
wireless-networks standards under WiMAX Forum.
Area of Influence
The bandwidth and area of WiMAX goes like this:
Can be devised with n numbers of devices to provide global connectivity.
Gives the relief from the hub of wires.
Gives real time play-back without streaming and a good alternative for (VoIP) services.
Gives the business people more power to explore their endeavor.
WiMAX is capable of providing the fastest possible static and dynamic internet access with blazing speed which is not possible with other 3g or any DSL lines.
When we talk about the connecting part of this very technology, then the term subscriber unit comes into play.
These are the devices specially designed and programmed in order to connect with the towers of WiMax. This technology can directly accessed from the satellites for which again the different codes are embedded into the device. The packs are available from user to user. For the community/ business users the packs are according to their need and thus we can say that this technology has more to offer to different people of different communities
