Comparing mobile Wimax, 3G and beyond

This paper examines the different technological options facing a service provider considering deploying a personal, mobile, broadband access network.

It provides a high level comparison of commonalities and differences of these various technologies. It focuses on high capacity technologies comparing Wimax 4G technology and the different 3G options, 1xEVDO, HSDPA / HSUPA, W-CDMA, cdma2000 3G FDDbased networks, and where possible, the "over the horizon" 3GPP-LTE.
