  4. 4.  High speed connection  up to Megabits/s The broader the bandwidth, the greater theinformation-carrying capacity ―Always on‖, continuous connection Can be DSL, cable wireless, fiber, BPL …July, 2012 4Broadband Deployment – WiMAX
  5. 5.  Two type of deployment :1. BBGP (Broadband to the General Population) Deploy nationwide Network speed 256 kpbs – 4 Mbps2. HSBB (High Speed Broadband) Deploy only in Klang Valley, Iskandar Malaysia, andkey industrial zone via wired technology Network speed 20-100 Mbps, while business will upto 1 GbpsJuly, 2012Broadband Deployment – WiMAX 5Source:
  6. 6.  BBGP throughout Malaysia Can be deploy via wired (DSL) or wireless (WiFi,WiMAX, 3G/HSDPA) However, the growth of wireless broadbandsubscriptions in the world is greater than fixed lineJuly, 2012 6Broadband Deployment – WiMAXWireless10 %FixedLine6 %Source:
  7. 7.  Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access Refer to IEEE 802.16 family (2001); IEEE 802.16dfor Fix Wireless and IEEE 802.16e for MobileWireless Surpass 40 miles range of wireless network Network speed is up to 70 MbpsJuly, 2012 7Broadband Deployment – WiMAXSource:
  8. 8.  Speed to market◦ Installing the network does not require the operator to takesignificant amounts of time. Surgical network deployment opportunities◦ operators have been able to focus on specific areas where there isstrong demand Mobility and multiple-use scenarios◦ the three modes of the WiMAX network — fixed, portable andmobile — could substantially expand their target customermarkets IP architecture◦ In the future, operators could deploy different technologies in thelast mile. Cost of spectrum◦ Compared with spectrum for 3G, WiMAX spectrum has been lessexpensiveJuly, 2012 8Broadband Deployment – WiMAXSource:

  18. 18.  WiMAX is a last mile wireless broadband access as analternative to cable/DSL/T1 Large area coverage Multi-User Conectivity◦ A single WiMAX tower can connect to 100 client receivers A single WiMAX access point can be used to serve an entirecommunity Due to the standardized and certified equipment, it will bevery easy to deploy WiMAX product In built QoS (Quality of Service)July, 2012Broadband Deployment – WiMAX 18
  19. 19.  Low bit rate over Long distance◦ Distance and bit rate features doesn’t work together Speed of connectivity◦ Any user closer to the tower can get higher speed Sharing of bandwidth◦ Functionality could go down if more than one user exists in asingle sector. WiMAX over Wi-Fi◦ WiMAX network is really expensive (the setup and frequencylicense) Data Rate◦ The data rate of WiMAX as compared to other network such asfiber optics, satellite, cables etc are very slow. Bad Weather◦ The quality of services decreases in rainy season because theweather condition could interrupt the signal which may causeof bad signal and broadcasting may be stop or interrupted.July, 2012Broadband Deployment – WiMAX 19
  20. 20.  By using backhaul feature of WiMAX, large number of WiMAXtowers can be set up in a matter of days, compared to wiringthat requires proper planning and heavy labor WiMAX lets users work on the move, rather than tying them toa fixed line More reliable as no wire cut problemJuly, 2012Broadband Deployment – WiMAX 20

  28. 28.  Currently Future Telecom Bhd (FTB) has operatedboth fixed and cellular service, such as fixedtelephone, GSM, GPRS, and 3G cellular service To minimize the cost, we do the migrationstrategy: overlaying the existing 3G to becomeWiMAXJuly, 2012Broadband Deployment – WiMAX 28
  29. 29. July, 2012Broadband Deployment – WiMAX 29The 3G Network will be remained; However, new OFDMA-MIMO dataoverlay network (WiMAX) must be deployed in new spectrum Involves deployment of new base station line card and clients
  30. 30.  As new entrants in the broadband market, weshould at least match the incumbents’ prices andspeeds If we provides subsidies for CPEs (indoor modem,PC cards, USB modem), however, prices forWiMAX services tend to be higher than for DSL atsimilar or equal download speeds. The most powerful pricing proposition is servicebundling: can significantly improve theperceived value of services through bundles.July, 2012Broadband Deployment – WiMAX 30
  31. 31. July, 2012 31Broadband Deployment – WiMAX
  32. 32.  We will build broadband technology andinfrastructure using WiMAX technology Beside ―last mile‖ figure and large coveragearea, WiMAX deployment will not take muchtime due to the standardized and certifiedequipment of WiMAX The deployment starts from investing thelicense, planning the migration and pricingstrategyJuly, 2012 32Broadband Deployment – WiMAX
  33. 33.  The most successful operators have not always been―first to market‖: they have been ―best to market‖ Successful operators have not necessarily priced theirbroadband packages as the lowest on the market, buthave focused instead on other value-added elements toadd to their value proposition Successful operators work hand-in-hand withmanufacturers to ensure that their customers get themost out of their user experience. Operators are eventeaming with notebook makers like Hewlett-Packardand Lenovo to make PC-broadband bundles available totheir clients.July, 2012 33Broadband Deployment – WiMAX
