Next Generation Technology
WiMax technology is considered to be a next generation technology because this technology is aimed at replacing most of the present wireless technologies like wifi, Bluetooth, microwave and mobile phone technologies. This technology would give rise to a broad consumer market for wireless digital devices. This wireless connection does not only provide compatibility with exiting devices but in the near future it would help in further inventions. The world would witness many inventions which are now even hard to imagine. WiMax is a technology which considered as the first step toward 4G. Today WiMax is operating as second generation and third generation technology but in near future it would be substantial 4G technology.
Future in Emerging Markets
WiMax is the next generation high speed internet connection which can be accessed with any digital portable device like palm top, laptop and smart phones. It can be forecasted that the number of subscribers for this technology would reach to 70million. So far it has captured the market of Korea with the help of its sister WiBro. This connection operates at range of frequencies this is the reason why further development in this technology would not stop or hamper. The future of WiMax forum is also attached to the growth of this technology. This technology is bread and butter for many. Therefore the further development in this technology would generate more jobs. The WiMax forum is working hard to create more awareness about the benefits of this technology. We can say hat their efforts are somewhat successful because now there are more than 170 vendors attached to this technology. WiMax standard is based on the 802.16 standards and it has many forms like the fixed wireless technology and the mobile WiMax technology. The wireless market is shifting to basic service connections to providing multimedia services. Companies like Telco’s are already enjoying huge profits using this blessing.
WiMax as a Broadband Technology
Besides limitations like limited bandwidth over large geographical area it would emerge as the best broadband wireless connection. Wired technologies have already been rejected due to their difficult management and expense. Wireless broadband connections are now in the hearts and pockets of the mobile users. This technology would make the communication world ubiquitous for us. It is also a part of almost all new digital devices. The user just has to subscribe and pay and the fast broad band connection would be available. The WiMax can be deployed at variable frequencies. WiMax is using 2 GHz to 11 GHz and up to 63 GHz frequency for its operation. However this is not the limit. The speed and efficiency of this connection can be increased. It is already providing multimedia services to ultimate users like video streaming, video conferencing, voice chat and voice over the internet. The broadband infrastructure of this technology is really simple as compared to the others of its type. Its current broadband speed is 34 Mbps and 1 GB. This speed would further increase with the development in the infrastructure. The line of sight connection provides fast internet connections even in remote areas. Imagine a world where a natural disaster has destroyed everything. This is the only network technology which would help us recover from it quickly. WiMax has already helped revived the communication needs in tsunami. The future of WiMax is very dazzling ahead.
