So, how will WiMAX make this possible?
A WiMAX deployment will essentially have two hardware components — a WiMAX tower and a WiMAX receiver. The tower is not unlike a cell tower, but can provide coverage to an estimated 30-mile radius. The tower connects to the Internet using a high-bandwidth wireline connection (e.g., T3), or it provide a wireless backhaul to other WiMAX towers with LOS (line of sight) microwave links.Ultimately, a network of connected WiMAX towers will drive the deployment of an 802.20-based Global Area Network (GAN), closely resembling cellular networks, but with far fewer tower required to provide the same coverage. This will allow true ubiquitous access across the country or region, providing bandwidth comparable to cable Internet service, at the very least.
