WiMAX and the vanishing scale

  1. I still think your read on this is confused, Om. If your spectrum is above 3 GHz it is not going to support mobility very well, so even if your equipment is based on 802.16e your application will still be Fixed WiMax. Second, if there are two major bands for WiMax, 2.6 GHz and 3.5 GHz, how is that different than any 3G technology? Indeed, I would say WiMax, with only 3 important bands (2.3 GHz, 2.5 GHz, and 3.5 GHz), is still far less fragmented than 3G where you have to support all of these: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1.8 GHz, 1.9 GHz, 2.1 GHz, and probably others I’ve forgotten. Even in the WiFi world you’ve got 2.4, 4.9, 5.2, 5.4, and 5.8GHz. So, where’s the beef?

  2. “If your spectrum is above 3 GHz it is not going to support mobility very well, so even if your equipment is based on 802.16e your application will still be Fixed WiMax.”

    Fixed WiMax is probably best fit for 90% of end costumers, maybe more. Plus you will get access to the end user (Last mile), without need to worry on how regulators has decide that problem.
