When an enterprise adopts the WiMax wireless broadband network it should also acquire a map that contains the details of a wireless world powered by WiMax and other wireless broadband features.
The elements that comprised the map of the wireless world are the following:
1. The WiMax – the existing WiMax deployment mainly follows the standard IEEE 802.16-2004 that is employed in implementing fixed and point-to-point (p2p) access of services. On the other hand, the latest standard which is named 802.16e-2005 enables mobility and is considered comparable to broadband services on cellular networks. The Mobile WiMax is also recognized as the first ever wide-area 4G technology and include the VoIP capability that is wireless as well.
2. The Radio Frequency Identification – the RFID is considered the radio version of bar codes which in terms cost is far different since RFID is more expensive. RFID in general tracks high-value items that are involved in manufacturing and logistics.
3. The Point-to-Point Mircowave – the P2P is employed in bridging data and voice networks in buildings that are separated by far distances which even reach miles for carrier bypass for easier integration and flexibility.
4. The Cellular Voice and Data – the cellular voice and data capacities are deployed on towers and on microcells that are installed in high density facilities.
5. The Converged Cellular and Wi-Fi Technologies – the convergence of both broadband technologies have been integrated into voice-data offering.
However, with the inclusion of the WiMax in the wireless broadband networks, the allocation of users varied. This is necessary since Mobile WiMax that is mainly employed by large enterprises send different data rates. The data being sent at the highest reliability for the welfare of the entire area’s coverage is being controlled as well so that the data can be delivered with high efficiency.
