Technology never ceases to impress. Every time you blink an eye or turn your head it seems like a new cool about technological development is on the horizon. Remember when mobile phones in the size of the head? Now they are very petite and can be easily into your skinny jeans pockets. Remember when you first logged on to the Internet via dial-up, listening eagerly to a crackling phone lines? Even if these technologies are actually relatively new, it seems like they haveSince time immemorial, because they had so entrenched in our daily lives. You have settled for granted, and now we expect even better, bigger new-fangled technology that appears around every minute. This raises the question as to exactly what new amazing technological achievements for us ready on the horizon?
The answer is simple, at least when we talk about the field of wireless communication:
WiMax and 4G. These two new developments to work in tandem toUsher in the new era of flexibility, versatility and quality when it comes to wireless communications. Basically, these new standards for communication. WiMax transmission networks will improve how we play, work and live in this modern age, in the highest internet rules.
But that is before us, we, we want to take a step back and see just how and what the fourth-generation wireless standards, and WiMax may actually do use. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is anew industry standard used for wireless broadband. Also known as IEEE 802.16, is designed to be positioned WiMAX as a huge metropolitan area network, providing broadband wireless access up to 30 miles for fixed stations and 3-10 miles for mobile stations. Compare that with today's standard WiFi (802.11) wireless local area network that works only within 100-300 meters from the central source. The difference is remarkable. The new wireless standard will work with 4G, the latestcomms generation of wireless technology to deliver a better, faster and more reliable Internet to people everywhere.
Basically it is like WiFi, but on steroids. Data transfer is greatly improved, which means that people can actually take their work on the street and not worry about uploading or downloading large files or heavy use of multimedia. The connection is on a par with that of a wired connection, ie DSL or cable broadband connections.
The possibilities areexciting. Internet users in a position to voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) use to replace regular landline phones, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) replacement cable TV, and much, much more. Mobile gaming and mobile media ads will be so much easier. In fact, mobile WiMax could simply replace the current mobile phone operating standards such as HSDPA, EVDO and EVDV.
This is the so-called last mile in terms of broadband. It is certainly a game changer. It could be used to wirewhole cities, so that everyone can be easily connected without any problems. The only requirements for this configuration are signal towers and a wired high-speed connection, the infrastructure is already enacted.
