What is WiMAX?
WiMAX is short for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. WiMAXhas the potential to provide broadband internet access just about anywhere you want. WiMAXworks on two basic forms first is base stations, installed by service providers to deploy the technology in a coverage area, and receivers, installed in clients. WiMAX is more reliable and painless as compared to Wi-Fi. WiMAX can provide broadband wireless access up to 30 miles (50 km) for fixed stations, and 3 – 10 miles (5 – 15 km) for mobile stations. In contrast, the Wi-Fi /802.11 Wireless Local Area Network Standard is limited in most cases to only 100 – 300 feet (30 – 100m).
