WiMAX, refers to interoperable implementations of the IEEE 802.16 wireless-networks standard (ratified by the WiMAX Forum), in similarity with Wi-Fi, which refers to interoperable implement] Wireless LAN standard (ratified by the Wi-Fi Alliance).
The IEEE 802.16 standard forms the basis of ‘WiMAX’ and is sometimes referred to colloquially as “WiMAX”, “Fixed WiMAX”, “Mobile WiMAX”, “802.16d” and “802.16e.” Clarification of the formal names are as follow:
802.16-2004 is also known as 802.16d, which refers to the working party that has developed that standard. It is sometimes referred to as “Fixed WiMAX,” since it has no support for mobility.
802.16e-2005, often abbreviated to 802.16e, is an amendment to 802.16-2004. It introduced support for mobility, among other things and is therefore also known as “Mobile WiMAX”.
Mobile WiMAX is the WiMAX incarnation that has the most commercial interest to date and is being actively deployed in many countries. Mobile WiMAX is also the basis of future revisions of WiMAX. As such, references to and comparisons with “WiMAX” in this Wikipedia article mean “Mobile WiMAX”.
Dmatics have extensive knowledge is in this domain and implemented many projects successfully, we are working very closely with world famous vendors.
Dmatics Wimax Solution
Point to Point: This is wireless connectivity between two sites, offices or location. We can provide above 1GBPS throughput on this technology.
Point to multipoint: This a specific type of multipoint link which consists of a central connection endpoint that is connected to multiple locations. Any transmission of data that originates from the central Location is received by all of the sites while any transmission of data that originates from any of the location is only received by the central location. We have great solutions and we can provide upto 300-500 MBPS throughput between 5-10 sites or locations.
