WiMax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is aBroadband Wireless Access (BWA) technology based on the IEEE 802.16standard that enables the delivery of high-speed personalservices to subscribers. WiMAX uses advanced radio technology With OFDM OFDMA(Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) and smart antennas to deliver multi-play services, i.e. voice, video and data over wireless and mobile networks. Operational in both licensed and license-exempt frequencies, the technology offers flexible and economically viable solutions for different deployment scenarios in urban, suburban and rural environments.
Much of the credit for the acceleration of the WiMAX industry and standards goes to the WiMAX ForumTM, which is dedicated to fostering the development and commercialization of the technology. The Forum, of which Alvarion is a founding member, is comprised of the majority of operators, equipment and component vendors active in the development and sale of products for the WiMAX communications ecosystem.
As a wireless broadband pioneer, Alvarion was one of the founders of the WiMAX industry. Leveraging the company's vast experience and know-how, Alvarion plays a pivotal role in shaping the new wireless broadband experience with a smooth migration towards WiMAX 2 (aka 16m) which will provide significantly increased peak data rates, with the potential for 100 Mbps downstream and 30 Mbps upstream, reduced latency, scalable bandwidth capacity, and backwards compatibility 16e technology.
