WiMax Operator's Manual: Building 802.16 Wireless Networks

Book Description

This text is aimed at someone making primary decisions as to the design and implementation of an 802.16 based wireless public network. This is a manual on how to architect and operate a service network offering broadband wireless "last mile" access. The scope of the treatment includes all layers of the network and issues of management and administration.This operational handbook covers both the planning and construction, and the day to day operation, of a standards-based broadband wireless network. It explains the advantages of broadband wireless and where it constitutes a best solution, and it also delineates the unique difficulties, challenges, and limitations of broadband wireless. It does not attempt to summarize all knowledge relating to digital radio services or public packet networks, but provides essentials for planning and running the networks and indicates what kinds of specialized services should be secured to ensure the success of the undertaking.

Book Description

With market value expected to reach $5 billion by 2007 and the endorsement of some of the biggest names in telecommunications, World Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is poised to change the broadband wireless landscape. But how much of WiMAX's touted potential is merely hype? Now that several pre-WiMAX networks have been deployed, what are the operators saying about QoS and ROI? How and when will device manufacturers integrate WiMAX into their products? What is the business case for using WiMAX rather than any number of other established wireless alternatives? WiMAX: Taking Wireless to the MAX examines the evolution of wireless, broadband, and the wireless broadband landscape with exhaustive coverage of technological advances and evolving topologies. It sets the tone for the journey towards untouched wireless heights - WiMAX. The author builds a complete understanding of Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) Technologies, elaborating on past developments, present needs and uses, and future trends and markets. He lays out a road map to the future and articulates present and future applications and models of BWA with focus on WiMAX. The book also provides a detailed discussion on the advanced technologies central to the existence of WiMAX. It presents strategies for building the case for WiMAX and achieving success for the different players, including service providers and equipment manufacturers. An increasing demand for access to information anytime, anywhere has led to explosive growth in access and wireless technologies. The trend has created new competitive threats as well as new opportunities in every walk of life. The task, then, is to turn possibilities into realities and provide solutions that enable anywhere, anytime access to information and applications at low cost and with a small investment. Taking a coherent and fact-based approach, this book explores the space between what is known and available and what industry needs.

WiMax Goes Mobile
The New 802.16e IS Ready To Roll

EDGE (Enhanced Data Rate For GSM Evolution), GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication), EVDO (Evolution Data Optimized), etc.: It takes a notebook to keep track of the acronyms for mobile technologies today, let alone to learn about the features each one offers. Add the new mobile WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability For Microwave Access) specification, officially known as 802.16e, to the mix and the situation becomes even more bewildering.

So, what exactly is mobile WiMAX, and what does it mean for road warriors? Like so many technologies before it, mobile WiMAX is either the up-and-coming killer specification or the most over-hyped concept in technology today, depending on who’s talking.


WiMAX 802.16e is the mobile variant of a wireless, broadband communications technology that works over greater distances than fixed (receiver stays in one place) Wi-Fi and at faster speeds than the mobile broadband offered in some cell phones. With mobile WiMAX, users will enjoy peak data rates of up to 5Mbps (megabits per second) over distances of several miles. (Theoretically, WiMAX operates at 30Mbps over distances of up to 30 miles, but experts say real-world limitations make such transmissions unlikely). Compare this to 300 feet or less with most Wi-Fi and peak data rates of 2Mbps with cellular, and you begin to see what the excitement’s all about.

With mobile WiMAX, proponents say, one would realize the speed of a stationary broadband connection with the mobility of a cell phone. The possibilities are tremendously exciting. Road warriors with notebooks or automobiles that are mobile WiMAX-enabled (either an embedded chip or an inserted card) could....

Review quote

Perhaps the fastest changing technology area is wireless communications. The old analog cell phone systems got us started with the idea of being able to talk anywhere. And if we could talk, we could send data. And if this worked, then the newer digital networks had to be designed from the ground up with a mixture of voice and data. Now we are reaching to the point where wireless may become a serious competitor to land lines for data communications. Already we see wireless networks in Starbucks and McDonalds, hidden below the surface are ATM machines, gas pumps, cash registers and more. The new IEEE 802.16 is bringing standardization to wireless broadband access, just as DSL and cable modem broadband.

This book is a snapshot of the technology of wireless data communications technology as it exists today. It is intended for the person who is thinking about or planning on the installation of a wireless data network. Part of the McGraw-Hill Professional Engineering series, it is a description of the technology itself. It is not a cookbook of the buy one of these and plug it into one of those types. It goes into the details of how the technology works. It describes all of the new buzz words. It is an introduction to Wi-Fi and WiMAX, but is not aimed at the total beginner or the shall we say technologically challenged.
