WiMAX Delivers Performance & Value at 3.5 GHz
WiMAX investment decisions are predicated by access to appropriately regulated, licensed spectrum. Recognizing the advantages of WiMAX, regulators around the globe have allocated considerable portions of spectrum amenable to WiMAX and continue to allocate new spectrum channels to account for interest from multiple providers as well as to address the need for scaling these networks over time. The global WiMAX community has successfully achieved some harmonization of the frequencies allocated for WiMAX. Almost three quarters of the spectrum allocated for WiMAX globally is focused in the 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz bands. Focusing development and deployment to a few, select bands offer greater design efficiencies as well as economies of scale - allowing steeper cost declines over time.
