WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access): A Broadband Wireless Product in Emerging Markets
Source: Kumaun University
Wireless access networks like WiMAX provide an excellent opportunity for operators to participate in the rapid growth opportunities that exist in emerging markets. Emerging markets are hungry for fixed broadband services; however characteristics of ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) limit the even distribution of fixed broadband services to encompass urban and rural areas. WiMAX-based access networks will enable local operators to cost-effectively reach millions of new potential customers and provide them with traditional voice and broadband data services.
