Wimax Technology

The last issue, we have mentioned the broadband technology which transmits the data via the high-electrical voltage power line (Broadband over Power Line). In this issue, we will discuss about wireless broadband or Wimax. It is a technology which is now a hot issue among Internet service providers as well as network service providers.

Wimax ( is shorten from Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access ) is the wireless technology of the broadband. Presently, if you need broadband service, there is a need to connect a LAN cable by using DSL technology. Wimax is a standard wvolved for building a point-to-multi-point wireless network covering a radius of many miles as well as the hot-spot area while Wifi covers only 100 feet inside a building or a house.

Wimax is a new hi-speed broadband technology evolved on the IEEE 802.16 standard which later becomes IEEE 802.16a. The approval comes out in January 2004 by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers which has a radius of 50 kilometers. That means Wimax can cover the area 10 times larger than 3G mobile network. Moreover, the maximum speed for sending the information is 75 megabit per second ( Mbps ) which is 30 times faster than 3G technology.
