Wimax Technology is a great development in wireless technology offering long distance broadband access. After viewing the rapid growth of Wimax technology in large business companies, multimedia project software and hardware manufacturer start to develop and test the compulsory components to deploy a Wimax Technology network. Large business corporations such as Intel, Samsung, Motorola and others have commenced worldwide deployment.
In 2004 leapfrogging cables and DSl technologies used to fetch wireless broadband access to rural areas and in 2009 Wimax technology widely spread in all over the world. Fixed wimax technology introduced in 2008. The rapid development of both Wimax technologies will be rolling out in coming days. For Wimax deployments; Asia and America working as a testing ground because in Taiwan, Pakistan, South Africa, Vietnam, and Nigeria Wimax technology take start and now the growth or accomplishment of Wimax deployments covering whole world. At the moment Wateen Technologies deployed Wimax Network in Pakistan that is one of the largest Wimax network in the world. In united state Sprint, clearwire and Nextel communications have already bought up the available spectrum and Wimax wireless technologies has been start in many urban and metropolitan areas. It is more expected that Wimax Technology will take over the mobile industries. The Wimax deployment skill set to overcome the digital divide because of easiness and efficiency. The Wimax deployments going on today throughout the world are under as.
Wimax Deployments in Lao Cai, Vietnam
Lao Cai is a maintained area located on Chinese border in Vietnam. It has round about 600,000 populations been most community is very poor. Intel, USAID, and VDC get on partnership to bring broadband and VoIP services via Wimax technology in region in 2004. The objective behind this partnership is that to encourage overseas investment and promote economic development in a region. Than Lao Cai had attractive good mobile phone exposure in the region. The wimax network contains a single base station bound to provide internet access via a fiber optical backhaul. Wimax deployment is offering services in the city and nearby areas. In urban areas VoIP services would also be put in practice which offering telecommunication services specially when there is never had a phone. In the Wimax deployment there is a base station which has an antenna that installed up to 70 meters on a telecommunications tower. In Internet café, government offices, schools, health centers, and farm about 20 modem installed and sip phone provided to each site. Then within local PSTN a line up VoIP switch and gateway connected which are located 300 miles away. Now the community of Lao Cai makes progress with broadband and telecommunication transportation. Nowadays Intel which is a leader to introduce this technology is thinking to implement Wimax deployment in nearby areas to get better economical status and for this it providing satellite backhaul for VoIP and broadband access.
Wimax Deployments in Gauteng, South Africa
The deployment of Wimax technology is beginning in Gauteng which is the province of South Africa. Gauteng is a large industrial region and Pretoria and Johannesburg are its popular cities. Almost in 150 countries Wimax deployment has been established and a WiMAX business market share of over 60% within 3.5 GHZ frequency range. Wimax broadband access is offering multimedia internet, Voice and data services. According to a report internet carry on to achieve approval in South Africa. This has socio-economic implication that goes ahead of the ideological or moral with very real insinuation for the development of the Internet economy in South Africa. The deployment of WiMAX technology is an inexpensively practicable means to recommend equivalent access for all.
WiMAX Deployments in the United States
Clear wire and Sprint Nextel have been buying up WiMAX spectrum in the united states. They both creating a large metropolitan market and offering 2.5 GHz frequency to 30 million users at the end of 2010. Sprint also choose the WiMAX format for 4G network and Nokia, Samsung, Intel and Motorola may be excepted partner in wireless broadband scheme. The subscriber base of Clear wire is round about 200,000 and now focusing on the urban market because in rural areas there are no broadband internet services. Clear wire is playing a major role to promote WiMAX Technology market and be expecting to be capable to roll out their networks more rapidly.
According to a 4G research report almost 600 WiMAX deployments are now alive by the end of 2009. Therefore WiMAX deployment may exceed HSPA deployment because by HSPA and LTE. There are only 300 cellular networks are alive and only 70 operators have committed with them for the deployment of WiMAX technology. The rapid growth of Wimax is due to wide range of coverage not only in specific areas but also in urban or rural areas. In 2011 it is expected that WiMAX deployment will increase more vastly than before because of its significant features.
