Now, it's made for real: WiMAX and LTE are the only existing 4G technologies. Both offer similar
speed, and as far as the end consumer is concerned, they are both the same – simply 4G (Just like 3G is simply
3G, not UMTS or CDMA2000).
But here's the hassle:
Some companies are love of LTE while others are like WiMAX.
And both of them want to ensure that their favoured technology is the only one left standing. Neither of them have
made it to the market in a big way yet. And the stakes here are big. Right from the hardware manufacturers to the software
deployers, everyone is involved in the fight.
Billions of dollars are at stake,
as is the pride of the big companies.
In a way, it's GSM
vs CDMA again.....except this time the fighers are much closer.
The main battle currently seems to be in the US.
Network Performance Testing going on....
Technology has changed the way we work. In fact, the
world relies heavily on internet applications and network systems that are growing increasingly
complex. This is because there are many more protocols, functions, languages, and capabilities than ever before.
More importantly, the amount of traffic and data being pushed across the networks have increased many times.
VS Wifi Technology: What's the thing that's "not the same?"
around the planet are curious on WiMax technology and what it can offer.
is a type of Internet connectivity protocol that is slowly gaining attention today. So what is WiMax
technology? WiMax is a new and innovative way of getting connected to the Internet. It is a
wireless telecommunications protocol that connects mobile devices to the World Wide Web from any place, at any time.
Necessity of WiMax
you understand your new potential purchase, the more you can make the right buying decision including getting an internet
connection. But it won't make equals at all, looking into getting a WiMax connection is an example.
If you have not already been introduced to it, WiMax is the latest development in wireless
telecommunications technology that are opening doors to high-speed Internet for users all over the country.
The term is short for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access and refers to the system responsible for bringing
fully mobile Internet access to people who are constantly on the go, as well as long-range high-speed broadband coverage to
people who do not have wired connections like DSL
Forget the fact that their networks are one of the worst
in the world.
The WiMAX vs LTE battle has really started
Launching its LTE networks next week.
That will mark its foray
into the 4G market. But guess who beat it to the punch? Sprint, in partnership with Clearwire.
And it did so using WiMAX.
Verizon and Sprint are among US's
four biggest telecom corps, and they are supporting different technologies. AT&T and T Mobile
have hinted that their 4G technology, when they launch it, will be based on LTE.
biggest mobile manufacturer in the world, Nokia, supports LTE.
True, it doesn't have a major presence in the US, but Nokia can pull plenty of strings to swing
the favor in balance on LTE.
One of the biggest telecom markets in the world might get LTE.
We are talking about India, which recently auctioned its 4G spectrum. A Part of
the spectrum was bought by an unknown company – Infotel, later bought by Mike Ambani.
It has been announced that he will be using LTE. Qualcomm, which
also has 4G spectrum in India, loves LTE too.
In many Asian
countries, however, there already exists a Wimax network, such as the P1 network in Malaysia.
In such places, they might prefer upgrading to WiMAX rather than switching to a completely new
Both WiMAX and LTE
seem to be getting a lot of support. Their fates hang in balance at the moment.What's the big deal?
stake are billions of dollars. We are talking about hardware manufacturers that have started making hardware compatible with
either LTE or WiMAX.
We are talking about telecom
operators that have invested heavily into buying hardware.
We are talking about people in IT who have set up the
networks for these telecom operators.
We are talking about mobile manufacturers
that have drawn up plans to manufacture, or have already manufactured Mobile Phone compatible with either of the technologies.
We are also talking about the
pride of huge corporations. Verizon, Sprint, Nokia, Reliance… These are not companies
that like to lose.
These are companies that will do anything to ensure that their favoured technology
emerges victorious.Is any one technology better than the other?
The thing is made even bigger because
neither technology is better than the other.
A choice between the two technologies is simply a matter of preference
for the most part (except when operators have already invested in hardware).
The end user wouldn't notice which
technology is being used.
In the case of GSM vs CDMA,
the differences were a lot clearer. For the users, it was the ability to easily switch mobile phones as and when they wished.
For the operators, it was a question of better sound quality (CDMA) vs lower complexity (GSM).

For WiMAX vs LTE,
however, the odds are more even. WiMAX has had a faster time to market, but that as failed to
give it a comprehensive lead. WiMAX has faster theoretical speeds, but that too is irrelevant
in practice. One thing WiMAX doesn't have, however, is widespread industry support.
History shows that it is not always the better technology that wins. Remember VHS? Of course you do…they were
everywhere. What about Betamax? No?
Betamax was the better technology, though a tad bit more expensive than VHS. The industry went for
the cheaper standard. And Betamax lost the war.
of Betamax vs VHS was not too different from WiMAX vs LTE.LTE's Ace. WiMAX's Hope.
When the biggest telecom companies in the US – AT&T and Verizon– and
the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world – Nokia – support the same technology,
what are the odds that WiMAX will survive?
True, we have been looking at the
US scenario throughout, but the outcome of the US battle will affect the rest of the world as well.
WiMAX's only hope at the present seems to be
the Asia-Pacific region where operators still haven't made a decision about the 4G technology of choice, and where Wimax
1 is more prevalent.
Chances are if countries like India, Korea, etc choose WiMAX
over LTE, WiMAX might still have a decent chance.
