Wimax 2: The path to 4G

When mobile users can't get video and other applications they want, they tend to get frustrated and impatient. And they’re tired of being told that in just a few years new technology will be available to meet their bandwidth and application needs.

A few years? They want their mobile applications now. That urgency is one of the biggest reasons for the impressive growth of mobile 802.16e Wimax technology.

Although current 802.16e Wimax technologies are proving exceptionally successful in bringing high-bandwidth mobile service to even the most demanding customers, the future of Wimax is assured by Wimax 2, which is based on IEEE standard 802.16m, the powerful next generation technology that positions Wimax operators for long-term growth.
