Octob. 2007 ITU decision - Wimax an IMT 2000 technology Wimax ecosystem (chips, devices, infrastr.) WiMAX in Macedonia : WiMAX in Macedonia NEOTEL – request for WiMAX freq. for test in Macedonia (2004), a year and more ahead from others (among the first in SEE) Licenses awarded in mid 2007- encountering significant delay being almost last in SEE and Balkans. Immediate reaction from incumbent Maktel operator – drastic reduction of ADSL prices (over 50%) Technological features and advantages : Technological features and advantages NLOS OFDMA (AAS, MIMO) Self Install CPEs QoS Nomad, Portable and Mobile deployment Flexible channal bandwidth Highly Efficient Spectrum Utilization All-IP core network High efficiency : High efficiency “The Business of WiMAX” by Deepak Pareek, John Wiley and Sons 2006 Equipment suppliers : Equipment suppliers Alcatel-Lucent, Nortel, Motorola, Samsung, Nokia-Siemens, Alvarion, Cisco-Navini, Telsima, RedLine, Airspan, Proxim, SR Telecom, WiNetworks, Axxcelera, Aperto, Hulu, Wavesat and much more Which vendor will You choose ?
