IEEE 802.16-2004
IEEE 802.16-2004 is a fixed wireless access technology, meaning that it is designed to serve as a wireless DSL replacement technology, to compete with the incumbent DSL or broadband cable providers or to provide basic voice and broadband access in underserved areas where no other access technology exists; examples include developing countries and rural areas in developed countries where running copper wire or cable does not make economic sense.
802.16-2004 is also a viable solution for wireless backhaul for WiFi access points or potentially for cellular networks, in particular if licensed spectrum is used. Finally, in certain configurations, WiMAX fixed can be used to provide much higher data rates and therefore be used as a T1 replacement option for high-value corporate subscribers.
Typically, the CPE consists of an outdoor unit (antenna etc.) and an indoor modem, meaning that a technician is required to connect a commercial or residential subscriber to the network. In certain instances, a self-installable indoor unit can be used, in particular when the subscriber is in relatively close proximity to the transmitting base station. The trend towards self-installable indoor units is likely to develop more noticeably in the next few years. As it does, the fixed wireless technology would introduce a degree of nomadic capability since the subscriber could travel with the CPE and use it in other fixed locations, e.g. office, hotel or coffee shop. Additionally, self-installable CPEs should make 802.16-2004 more economically viable as much of the customer acquisition cost (installation, CPE) is reduced. Although it is technically feasible to design an
