A need for the benefits of high-speed internet access in the mobile environment has been increasing, with growing expectations for the implementation of Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) to exceed the transmission speeds of third generation mobile phone communications (3G). WiMAX extends the benefits of WiFi networks to deliver the next-generation mobile Internet. Integrating WiMAX and WiFi, it promises convenient and affordable broadband connectivity that brings new deployment models for service providers, as well as new usage models for subscribers. The ability to be connected to the Internet and to have access to real-time information in more places is of high value to both business professionals and consumers.
