Our Holistic Approach

WiFi-6 & 5G Rollouts


Per GSMA, during 2019, mobile technologies and services generated $4.1 trillion of economic value added (4.7% of GDP) globally. This figure will approach $5 trillion by 2024 as countries increasingly benefit from the improvements in productivity and efficiency brought about by increased take-up of mobile services. Further ahead, 5G technologies are expected to contribute $2.2 trillion to the global economy between 2024 and 2034.

Underlying Technology

WiFi 6 WiMAX + Mobile Broadband

(Multiple Spectrum / Frequencies)

WiMAX is a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to wired broadband like Cable and DSL. WiMAX provides fixed, nomadic, portable and mobile wireless broadband connectivity without the need for direct line-of-sight with a base station. In a typical cell radius deployment of 3 to 10 kilometers. 

WiMAX Forum Certified™ systems deliver capacity of up to 40 Mbps per channel, for fixed and portable access applications. Mobile network deployments are expected to provide up to 15 Mbps of capacity within a typical cell radius deployment of up to three kilometers. WiMAX technology is incorporated in notebook computers, smart phones and PDAs, allowing for urban areas and cities to become “metro zones” for portable outdoor broadband wireless access.

WiMAX is also the new standard in mobile broadband.

·       WiMAX doesn't require line-of-site, meaning less interference and secured.

·       Can be used in WiMAX-enabled vehicles, outdoors, laptop, or in buildings.

·       Easy to set up. No configuration or drivers needed.

·       Licensed frequencies to ensure interference-free connections.

·       Signal is encrypted for privacy and security.

Due to Structured CAPEX & OPEX, scalability, high-performance, affordability, availability, mobility and ease-to-manage WiMAX networks are suitable for large, medium or small deployments in emerging markets. Sectorized WiMAX networks enable operators to reach previously unreachable areas of coverage and provide QoS with substantially higher bandwidth/capacity at affordable prices.

WiMAX Background: WiMAX is a new world standard for low-cost, high performance wireless broadband networks. Global industry players have joined the WiMAX Forum and are manufacturing equipment in conformance with the new standard.

One of the main goals of WiMAX is to make high-quality, long range data and voice communications affordable. Today a smartphone and laptop can function wireless in a small coffee shop with WiFi access. With the mobile version of WiMAX (802.16e), that same laptop would function outdoors even though it is receiving a signal from a base station a mile away.

Technology Improvements 

WiFi-6 + WiMAX Advantages Over 

Existing Traditional Wireless Systems

CAPEX / OPEX: Capital Expenses (CAPEX) / Operating Expenses (OPEX) are far less than traditional terrestrial networks. The advent of WiMAX-enabled laptops and PDAs in combination with mesh networking technologies and smart antenna systems make it possible to provide “no truck roll” service, thus reducing operational expenditures and improving the total Return on Investment (ROI).

CPE Cost: Intel has developed Montevina platform, which offers multi-mode Wi-Fi/WiMAX adapters including a single Wi-Fi (802.xx), if needed. Intel also announced the release of its Rosedale chip, the Intel® PRO/Wireless 5116. Interoperability testing for 3.5 GHz products also completed. As a result cost of the Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) at the home or business will drop significantly over time.

Distance: Increases in both point-to-point range and point-to-multipoint range are significant and translate to more customer connections using less radio gear. A cell radius of 1/8 -1/4 miles with WiFi mesh gear increase to 3-5 miles with WiMAX gear depending on the choice of frequency, topography and other factors.

Interoperability: WiMAX ushers in a new era in how outdoor broadband networks are planned and operated. Since components will be interoperable between vendors, the risks associated with deploying proprietary systems decrease significantly.

Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS): Existing proprietary outdoor wireless radio systems require a line-of-sight (LOS) link between the access point and consumer modem. The WiMAX standard features a 256 carrier OFDM technology which significantly enhances the NLOS capabilities of the radio, due to better signal penetration. This allows the operator to support more customers per cell site.

Quality of Service (QoS): WiMAX systems have standardized QoS functionality and features built-in which enable carriers to offer business-class services.

Throughput: Per industry sources, standard is expected to deliver upwards of 40 Mbps–50 mbps net throughput per radio. If a cell site utilizes four access points, it could deliver up to 160 Mbps – 200 Mbps to customers.

Applications: End-user can use more applications due to distance, quality and throughput improvements. Services can be delivered via a fixed connection to the customer premise or via a portable modem device. True wireless fiber-optic-type services and true low-cost T1/E1 quality replacement services can be delivered via WiMAX enabled networks as well as cellular backhaul and WiFi backhaul.

Frequency Bands: In Asian, European, Far Eastern countries and Russia 3.5 GHz frequency band is used for WiMAX. Whereas, in United States of America 2.5 GHz (licensed) and 5.8GHz (unlicensed) frequency band are used.

Profitability: WiMAX allows carriers to attain a new level of profitability due to the quality, increased throughput, distance, lower operating costs and lower CPE costs. GDN can assist in developing financial plans to accurately reflect these performance improvements.
