No Strings Attached

Have you guys POTONG POTONG and POTONG? 

What! not yet?!

Ok, seat back, relax and let me introduce you to....

WIMAX!


WiMAX, meaning Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunication technology that provides fixed and fully mobile internet access. The technology provides up to 30 Mbps in real world end-user throughput. WiMAX is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard (also called Broadband Wireless Access). The name "WiMAX" was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformity and interoperability of the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL"

The bandwidth and range of WiMAX make it suitable for the following potential applications:
  • Providing portable mobile broadband connectivity across cities and countries through a variety of devices.
  • Providing a wireless alternative to cable and DSL for "last mile" broadband access.
  • Providing data, telecommunications (VoIP) and IPTV services (triple play).
  • Providing a source of Internet connectivity as part of a business continuity plan. That is, if a business has both a fixed and a wireless Internet connection, especially from unrelated providers, it is less likely to be affected by the same service outage.
  • Providing a network to facilitate machine to machine communications, such as for Smart Metering.
There are numerous devices on the market that provide connectivity to a WiMAX network. These are known as the "subscriber unit" (SU).

There is an increasing focus on portable units, this includes handsets (similar to cellular smartphones), PC peripherals (PC Cards or USB dongles), and embedded devices in laptops, which are now available for Wi-Fi services. In addition, there is much emphasis from operators on consumer electronics devices such as Gaming consoles, MP3 players and similar devices. It is notable that WiMAX is more similar to Wi-Fi than to 3G cellular technologies.

The WiMAX Forum website provides a list of certified devices. However, this is not a complete list of devices available as certified modules are embedded into laptops, MIDs (Mobile internet devices), and other private labeled devices.

So what are you waiting for? It's time for "NO STRINGS ATTACHED!" Let's POTONG POTONG POTONG!
