What is WiMAX?
WiMax is an established international standard for wireless telecommunications that operates on licensed frequencies of radio spectrum to deliver high-bandwidth data services. WiMax, which stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is governed by the WiMax Forum, formed in June 2001 to promote conformance and interoperability of the IEEE 802.16 standard. The Forum describes WiMax as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DLS." In addition, WiMax technology allows interoperability of devices. Ultimately, this competition will drive down prices and make access more affordable.
WiMax technology allows BridgeMAXX to bring broadband services to communities traditionally underserved by older high speed Internet services. Because WiMax is a long range, highly scalable system, it enables BridgeMAXX to reach customers even in areas with no existing cable or telephone infrastructure. With WiMax, BridgeMAXX can provide access and economic opportunites associated with broadband connection to individuals and businesses across the country. Most BridgeMAXX subscribers are able to set up service on their own within a matter of minutes. They will be able to use their portable service inside or outside their homes and offices at distances of up to two miles.
