Mobile WiMax 4G technology is the best option for those subscribers who live far outside the city, namely far from the areas where the communication cables are laid, or in places with high load 4G towers. Do not forget that this communication technology operates through network towers, such as base stations, transmitting a signal at 2-11 gigahertz. In this article, we will show you what Wimax-technology has the benefits as well as how you can use it.
Wimax-technology and principles of its usage
WiMax is a name that is familiar to all users, but it was originally the name of a forum on the Internet that described this technology in action. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is the full name of this technology, and it uses frequencies in the range of 10-66 GHz. This is the reason why the frequency range is determined.
Today in the modern world, this technology has a great popularity and demand, and it is successfully applied in many fields, among which:
- possibility of wireless connection to the system;
- in several seconds, individual WiFi points can connect to each other;
- increased capacity to use remote monitoring systems;
- transmission/receipt of data via secure channels at high speed.
This technology has been successfully used in the creation of networks for the transmission of information within a single locality. In this context, WiMax technology will be applied as the primary communication channel.
Fixed and mobile WiMax
The developers of this technology could not combine requirements for mobile and fixed use in one standard. As a result, two versions were developed that differed between factors such as bandwidth, working frequency range, radiation power, band width, and methods of signal modulation and encoding, and transmission rate.
However, the main difference between the two variants of this technology is that the mobile WiMax technology works perfectly only with moving subscribers, and the fixed WiMax is designed only to serve static subscribers. Every user should understand this difference, otherwise he or she risks getting inconvenience in using devices with this feature.
Fixed WiMax is intended for the organisation of fixed access respectively. In this case, specialists use a modem with which connection occurs in a limited radius, mainly this variant of communication works in the range of 3.5-5 GHz. The fixed version of this tool is successfully applied in the organisation of interaction of wired access technologies, such as the elimination of connectivity problems of end users.
Today, ISPs use WiMax wireless technology for several reasons, such as:
- fast scaling and low deployment cost;
- wide coverage of hard-to-reach areas, and this factor is advantageous since there is no possibility for laying cables.
This mobile format operates at 2.3-2.7 or 3.4-3.8 GHz. This version of WiMax features some specific features, such as seamless switching between existing local area networks at the time of the move, and its usage in roaming. This technology is most popular in Russia and the CIS countries, but in other countries of the world this standard is not widely used.
All this was possible only because other technologies, which have been received recently, were better in terms of functionality and liked by users due to the simple use. Such technologies are an integral part of the life of modern man, although they are not yet ubiquitous. But very soon, each of us will be able to have such tools. Thus, we will make our lives more comfortable.
