WiMAX, which means worldwide interoperability for microwave access is a concept, that centers on standards initiative. Its goal is to make sure that the broadband wireless radios manufactured for customer use can be operated from one vendor to another.
WiMAX WLAN technology provides wireless data, which is comparable to WiFi. The only difference is that its level and speed permits it to build hybrid and wireless networks whatever location or size it may be.
Why WiMAX WLAN?
Since WiMAX WLAN technology has high data speed network connections, it can serve as a backhaul for WLAN hot spots. People who are always moving can then get their WiFi services on mobile technologies. This is because WiMAX WLAN allows interoperability among different systems.
Second, a service provider, which doesn’t have a mobile network, can use a WiMAX WLAN technology network at significantly lower prices. This is because WiMAX WLAN technology is easier to built since there is no need to use expensive cables. This is so unlike the WiFi that needs cable and DSL systems.
A business that plans to undertake a WiMAX WLAN must understand the technology of wireless and wireless networks and its advantages. Obviously, there are some areas that a normal wired network cannot access due to distance, topography and difficult terrains. The easiest way is to use WiMAX WLAN in these special circumstances.
If a business has proper understanding of how WiMAX WLAN works, it can also help during the planning stage specifically if a business wants to have a wireless Internet access service in rural areas.
