Week 5 DQ 2
Write a 250- to 300-word short-answer response to the following:
Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is a very popular topic today since it offers the possibility of wireless broadband signal capability over large geographic areas. WLAN signals suffer from a number of potential degradations such as multipath and fading. Balakrishnan, et al. (2009) analyzes the WiMAX technology in these conditions. An interesting side note to recognize is that this analysis was done via computer simulation using software called OPNET. Analyze and discuss the potential for the use of WiMAX in your corporate environment. Do you see WiMAX becoming the predominant WAN wireless technology of the future? If so, why? If not, why?
