WiMAX Forum

Wimax technology, as the first generation of 4G broadband wireless technology with built-in QoS support, provides cost-effective network solutions for Wimax operators to offer ubiquitous VoIP services.

By providing a Wimax VoIP network, the Wimax service provider can:

  • Leverage the broadband capacity and built-in airlink QoS capability of WiMAX technology to deploy low-cost and high-quality converged voice and data services;
  • Reduce both capex and opex while deploying a converged wireless and wireline IP network infrastructure for their 4G services;
  • Extend their market share beyond the fixed or wireless subscribers to the fixed mobile
  • convergence (FMC);
  • Compete with the incumbent the wireless cellular service providers;
  • Outperform off-the-shelf best effort VoIP solutions; and
  • Increase operator revenue by offering an additional service.
