WiMAX and LTE are the two principal 4G mobile broadband technologies and research indicates that they will remain in the forefront for the next five to ten years. WiMAX enables new revenue generating applications previously reserved to fixed line broadband. Both are all-IP, integrating mobile broadband with IP networking, and both offer an ecosystem for networks, devices and applications.
Equipped with an arsenal that includes today’s WiMAX and a SDR migration path to LTE, operators will gain a valuable competitive edge and gain market share by taking advantage of access to broadband spectrum and be early to penetrate wireless broadband markets.
So what’s the action plan? Clearly, the answer is not to rest idly on spectrum holdings. To achieve and maintain a competitive edge, action in the 4G landscape needs to be taken today. That means deploying tried and true, open standard WiMAX platforms, with proven devices, applications and rich ecosystem. WiMAX lowers cost of ownership, especially with its cost efficient spectrum and IPR. The rapid time-to-market allows for more Greenfield operators to penetrate new markets.
WiMAX is, and will continue to be, relevant for 4G wireless broadband due to:
RAN migration costs and complexity can be significantly reduced by software only upgrades like Alvarion’s SDR (Software Defined Radio) and the ability to support multiple air interfaces (LTE and WiMAX overlay).
