Because WiMax is alive and well.

 

Define soon.

 

That only makes sense as they're very similar.

 

They are very similar as LTE is based off of WiMax.

 

It isn't.

How many potential WiMax subscribers are there now that Clearwire is killing WiMax?

 

Oh and:

 

"Almost one year ago, the GSMA called on Taiwan's government to abandon its plans to help local vendors become leaders in the WiMAX equipment market and instead lend support to LTE equipment vendors."

Am I missing something?

 

Wimax is a shorter life than CDMA.

 

Here's some more evidence that WiMax is alive and well:

Why? What advantage does WiMax have over TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE. What am I missing?

Look what Yota did:

 

"In late 2009 and early 2010, Yota visited every single vendor of WiMax silicon and asked whether they planned to use the faster WiMax 2 standard, Khachaturov said. Each said it would do so only if Yota committed to a large order. So Yota jumped on the LTE bandwagon.

The advantage would be a much larger ecosystem of suppliers for both network equipment and smartphones and other customer devices."

WiMax is dead. It's just running on fumes.

Lower cost structure. Lower latency. Band support. I can implement an entire fixed WiMax network  that brings me in a handsome revenue for less than a single LTE core. Well, not that I would. While much cheaper than LTE, WiMax is still far too expensive.

 

Apparently as a network operator that knows on a first name basis literally dozens of companies with WiMax networks, I should cast that aside and listen to a guy with 68 posts with an iPhone in Detroit that knows how to use Google.

What company do you run?

What company do you run?

 

Intelligent Computing Solutions, a DeKalb, IL based fixed wireless and soon fiber optic provider of Internet and data services. We've had steady growth over eight years and have obtained at least partial pieces of two other operators in my area in that time. Time is running out this year, but I should be deploying my own fiber optic network next year.

What do you use for your wireless technology?

Expand into PA! I don't have any cable or DSL here, and the local WISP doesn't reach here.

Work with that WISP. We're usually easy to work with. Find out how many customers they'd need in your area to justify the expansion, then find them.

I have, actually!  We'll see what happens.

 

The state of PA and all ILECs have a commitment to provide DSL to all customers by 12/31/2015.  We are supposed to get DSL by October 2014.  We'll see if it happens!

Now that We got slapped and this was spun off into its own thread... are you truly wanting to learn or are you just being a troll?

Do you use MVDDS?

What do you think about it? Cablevision recently shut down their OMGFAST and I'm curious if it was because of a technical reason.

I'll have to check on that. I use equipment by Ubiquiti Networks, Mikrotik and Cambium (used to be Motorola). I use 5 GHz and 3650 MHz.

A tower costs me about $7k to build out. I need about $1,000/month in revenue to break even on a site.

So doesn't this sound like the answer to rural broadband? Edited by qpotlk1134

assuming he was referring to 3.6/5ghz, probably not for *mobile* rural broadband, but could very well be a possibility for *FIXED* rural broadband.

MVDDS.

MVDDS has a range of 5 miles, so it won't be of much help for real rural areas. 5 GHz and maybe the new 3550 band are the best hope for fixed rural broadband. 3550 would be adding another 100 MHz to 3650. There's several hundred MHz in 5 GHz, but too many of them have low power limits restricting them to maybe 6 or 7 miles for PtMP. Hoping to get some more space in 5 GHz brought in and at a higher power. I think the unlicensed 10 GHz proposal may have had enough power to go more than 5 miles, but I am far from certain on that.

How much bandwidth to you have at each site?

I have 200 megs across about a dozen sites, but it isn't all being used. I will be adding a few hundred megs more as I bring on a couple large customers.

Are you for commercial or residential access?

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
