Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) Welcome to the World of Wireless

A radio technology that networks the devices. Refers to wireless LAN products based on the IEEE 802.11b specification Provides easy connections to the internet and business networks while traveling The main attractive feature of this technology is that it can provide wireless broadband connection within a specific geographic boundary.

OPERATING MODES Infrastructure Mode


There are many WiFi hotspots now available in public places like restaurants, hotels, libraries and airports. For example, Spenzer PLAZA The number of hotspots in the world is growing daily.

Introductio n
It is one of the most promising broadband wireless access technology for next generation all-IP networks. The 802.16 family of standards is officially called Wireless MAN, it has been dubbed WiMAX form World wide Interoperability for Microwave Access.

Provide high-speed Internet access to home business subscribers, without wires. 10-66 GHz and sub 11 GHz Legacy voice systems Voice over IP


TCP/IP Applications with different QoS requirements

Wimax vs wi-fi WiMAX is targeted for longer range Metropolitan Area (indoor

& outdoor) Different from Wi-Fi, which is primarily targeted for Local Area Network (indoor) applications. The main distinction between WiFi and WiMAX is speed and coverage distances: WiFi has a typical bandwidth of 2MBps whereas WiMAX can have a bandwidth of up to 75MBps. The coverage distances also differ to a great extent. A WiFi hotspot typically covers a few hundred feet radius (fraction of a kilometer) whereas a WiMAX can practically cover up to a distance of 10 kilometers.

Wireless communication 1. LOS- Line Of Sight

2. NLOS- Non Line Of Sight

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing technology based on multicarrier modulation. is a

OFDM possesses multiple carriers which are mutually orthogonal. Theses subcarriers are closely placed to each other on the frequency domain, & each sub carrier is modulated & demodulated separately.

How it works

WiMAX works as point to multipoint system, which is made up of base station and subscriber equipment

Broadband wireless accesses(bwa)

The increased demand on multimedia services let to the need for BWA (Broadband Wireless Access) This let to the appearance of WiMAX technology Advantages of BWA: Fast connection (several Mbps/user) Relatively cheap (no cable infrastructure) Not limited by location (wireless links)

Wimax Infrastructure

A WIMAX tower: similar in concept to a cell-phone tower. A single WIMAX tower can provide coverage to a very large area (~10 km).

Wimax routers/base stations

A WIMAX receiver : The receiver and antenna could be a small box or PCMCIA card, or could be built into a laptop. NEC Japan has announced its new and compact WiMAX router with embedded wireless LAN, it is dubbed the NEC WiMax Router Any wireless node within the coverage area would be able to access the Internet

Subscriber units There are two versions:

Indoor SU. Outdoor SU. Indoor units are comparable in size to a cable modem or DSL modem. Outdoor units are roughly the size of a laptop PC, and their installation is comparable to a residential satellite dish. There is an increasing focus on portable units including handsets and PC peripherals.

applications of wimax
WiMAX Broadband Applications WiMAX VoIP Broadband Data Connections Digital Television Urban WiMAX Hot Zones Surveillance Services

Triple play
Appearance of VoIP made it possible for Voice over WiMAX Voice services Appearance of IPTV made it possible for TV over WiMAX Video services Integrated network: Data, Voice and Video Mobility WiMAX becomes a strong candidate for future mobile networks

Wimax gadgets
The below shown gadgets are the latest using WiMAX technology

Vehicle accident
Portable or fixed mounted cameras can be used to capture video or still images of a vehicle accident to send to emergency room doctors.

WiMAX, LTE, MESH Wireless Network

Doctors at the emergency room can see the vehicle and get an understanding of the mechanism of injury to guide their treatment of the victim.

Enables real time monitoring of Patients on the way to the Hospitals

Remote medical diagnosis

Cameras inside ambulances can capture video of patients to send to emergency room doctors for consultation.

WiMAX, LTE, MES Wireless Networ

Doctors at the emergency room can help guide treatment of the victim, especially important for time critical treatment.

Remote diagnosis can shorten the time before treatment which can potentially save lives and shorten recovery time

Mobile Wimax salient features

Wimax speed

General packet Radio Services Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution Evolution Data optimized (Only)

EAP authentication Key Binding Device and User authentication capability


Let us conclude
Wi-Fi & Wi-Max is an alternative to cable and DSL for last-mile broadband access Developing countries Rural areas Provide high-speed mobile data and telecommunications services using WiMAX.

Its time for small Demo

A journey of a thousand sites begins with a single click Full effort is full victory .
