WiMax, which stands for WorldwideInteroperability for Microwave Access is a form of the 4G wireless technology. It is a technology used for providing wireless internet service across different areas. In terms of capacity and bandwidth, it has wireless services which are unmatched to any other covers an area which is larger than any other wireless service. WiMax provides a handy, fixed and mobile connectivity which is much more efficient than any presently used technology.
Using WiMax you will be able to use internet at your home or office and also on your mobile phones in any part of the world. WiMax technology is also cost effective if we compare it to previous generations of wireless technologies like 3G, etc making it is possible for Internet to reach any part of the world including remote areas also.
WiMax can also be considered as an addition of Wi-Fi which has more advanced features like high-speed Internet across on a broad range of devices like mobile, laptops, smartphones, etc. The scope of WiMax is also wider. Many mobile application development organizations have started working on this technology. However, at the core WiMax is a set plan with a purpose to ensure that the broadband wireless technology should reach the customer. The main advantage of WiMax is its ability to handle growing amount of data in a capable manner. WiMAX can also be used to provide a wireless broadband access to consumers and internet providers for high-speed data and telecommunications services. People nowadays are using WiMax enabled mobiles and laptops which helps them to connect to internet from anywhere with a high speed. You can stay in touch with anyone in the world irrespective of your location. Using WiMax you can surf the net, talk to people, watch TV or movies on your phone handset. In India, WiMAX could be used for broadband internet facility in villages. The biggest drawback of the Wi-Fi network was that it could not reach remote areas but that is not the case with WiMax. It can reach anywhere with features like high speed, wire free and less cost.
The major benefit of this technology is its simple structure. The only requirement for WiMax to work in any area is just a tower to receive signals so that the connection can be established which is a task completed by telecom software companies WiMax if merged with other technologies like 3G or Wi-Fi will make any device more useful. It can transfer data in any form like voice, video etc. The other advantage of WiMax is that it grows with the business. It can connect to various devices at a time. In India, Tata Group pioneered in getting WiMax to India so that it provides connectivity across various cities and villages in India which still used wired broadband. It also helps in meeting the increasing business needs in terms of bandwidth. It brought the broadband facility closer to consumer and the provider with less cost and infrastructure.
