Wimax, HSPA+, and LTE: A comparative analysis

WiMAX Forum

The Wimax technology is field proven with more than 500 deployments worldwide providing services for fixed, nomadic, portable, and mobile broadband applications.

The Wimax Forum is moving aggressively to define a system specification for Wimax 2 based on the 802.16m amendment to the IEEE 802.16 air interface standard. This backwards compatible migration path will give operators the capability of meeting IMT-Advanced performance requirements for next generation broadband mobile networks in the 2011/2012 timeframe.

Both the 3GPP and Wimax migration paths are targeting to meet the same end result; the performance goals established by IMT-Advanced. OFDMA with an all-IP core network architecture have been accepted as the basic foundation for achieving these goals.

Time-to-market is the key differentiator with Wimax holding a significant advantage.
