Thomas L. Posted May 21, 2012 Share Posted May 21, 2012 I'm sure this has been mentioned deep in a thread somewhere, but I really don't know where to start so I thought I'd ask directly. First off, I haven't posted much but am a long-time lurker, I've been kind of a closet mobile network technology geek for quite a while. My question is this: does LTE have any inherent technological advantages that make it a better choice over WiMax? I know there are advantages now because it's become the de facto standard for 4G around the world, so there are many more products being developed, but, all other things being equal, was one better than the other, did one technology have better signal propagation than the other (if both at the same frequency?)? How robust is the signal propagation of LTE at 1900mhz compared to that of CDMA at 1900mhz? Also, how different will LTE-TDD be from WiMax at 2500mhz in terms of signal propagation and throughput/consistency of service/hand-offs/etc? Once again, sorry if this has all been answered before, but I appreciate any insight all of you experts can provide! Thomas Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
