Wimax - Opportunites for Developing Nations

  1. 2. Introduction
  2. 3. <ul><li>WiMAX is a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL. </li></ul><ul><li>It provides fixed, nomadic, portable and mobile wireless broadband connectivity. </li></ul>
  3. 4. OVERVIEW <ul><li>Wimax Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Wimax Standards </li></ul><ul><li>OFDM & OFDMA </li></ul><ul><li>Wimax Advantage </li></ul><ul><li>Competing Technologies </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>In a typical cell radius deployment of three to 10 kilometers Wimax systems can be expected to deliver capacity of up to 40 Mbps per channel, for fixed and portable access applications. </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile network deployments are expected to provide up to 15 Mbps of capacity within a typical cell radius deployment of up to three kilometers. </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>Outdoor CPE </li></ul><ul><li>Indoor CPE </li></ul><ul><li>Wimax Cards/Chips </li></ul>
  6. 8. <ul><li>OFDM is a digital multi-carrier modulation scheme, which uses a large number of closely-spaced orthogonal sub-carriers . </li></ul><ul><li>Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access ( OFDMA ) is a multi-user version of the popular OFDM digital modulation scheme. Multiple access is achieved in OFDMA by assigning subsets of subcarriers to individual users as shown in the figure below. This allows simultaneous low data rate transmission from several users. </li></ul>
  7. 10. <ul><li>Adaptive Antenna System - beam forming properties that can steer their focus to a particular direction or directions. This means that while transmitting, the signal can be limited to the required direction of the receiver; like a spotlight. Conversely when receiving, the AAS can be made to focus only in the direction from where the desired signal is coming from. </li></ul>
  8. 11. <ul><li>Adaptive Modulation and Coding - Adaptive modulation allows WiMAX system to adjust channel modulation scheme, according to SNR ratio in radio link. If good SNR is achieved, system can switch to the highest throughput modulation (64QAM). If fading occurs system can shift to other low-throughput modulation, but still not dropping connection. </li></ul>
  9. 12. <ul><li>DSL </li></ul><ul><li>LMDS </li></ul><ul><li>EDGE </li></ul><ul><li>EVDO </li></ul><ul><li>WCDMA </li></ul>

  11. 14. <ul><li>Addition of Beamforming increases spectral efficiency by ~2x over MIMO </li></ul>Note: 3G mobile WiMAX performance comparison based on EV-DV simulation methodology
  12. 15. Parameter WiMAX LMDS Range 50 Kms 5 Kms Frequency 2-11 GHz 3 GHz License Combination of licensed and unlicensed spectrum Licensed spectrum Standard 802.16/16d/16e Standards activities are currently underway at the ATM Forum, the Digital Audio Video Council (DAVIC), the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). Line of Sight Required in case of 802.16 but not required in case of 802.16d Required but can be done away with by using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) Data Rates Upto 75 Mbps Upto 1.5 Gbps Mobility Using 802.16e, but this standard is likely to come only by 2008 No mobility offered suitable only for fixed wireless broadband
  13. 17. High data rates, high mobility along with wide area coverage are the hallmarks of future Mobile Broadband services
  14. 18. Strengths & Weaknesses
  15. 19. <ul><li>The promise of a free CPE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Intel is strongly backing the technology and committed to provide WiMAx enabled laptops from H2 2007 / 2008 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Samsung and Intel are first tier chips manufacturers and have the capacity to deliver mobile WiMAX modules embedded into data, consumer electronic and voice devices </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Large ecosystem </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Intel is investing a lot of money in the technology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>First Tier vendors are more and more committed to the technology: Samsung, Motorola, Alcatel… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Balanced IPR position </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No single company is in a dominant patent ownership position </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>According to WiMAx Forum, main holder is Samsung who owns close to 20% of main patents </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cheaper spectrum and license fees </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In France for example, about 60 M€ for one national license, compared with 619 M€ for 3G license </li></ul></ul>
  16. 20. <ul><li>Lack of volume and poor economies of scale </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First Mobile WiMAX-certified equipment should be available in H2 2007 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mobile WiMAX vs. Fixed WiMAX </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Delay of WiMAx offering </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Main operators are waiting for backward compatibility (Europe) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mobile services are expected to be the main market </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Few large carriers ready to deploy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At the global level only Sprint Nextel and KT have clearly endorsed WiMAx technology </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Lack of harmonised / valuable spectrum </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Different frequencies worldwide </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Part of the spectrum is not suitable for mobility </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Indoor coverage is still an issue </li></ul></ul>
  17. 21. Capacity Planning Coverage Costs <ul><li>Churn gives de-installation and re-installation of CPEs </li></ul><ul><li>Expensive customer premises equipment compared to ADSL </li></ul><ul><li>Line-of-sight systems may require costly pre-installation site surveys </li></ul><ul><li>Continuous trade-off between capacity, coverage and reach and frequency re-use/interference </li></ul><ul><li>Line-of-sight systems with high coverage require more frequency re-use and give more interference issues </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of information of future customer locations demands careful initial coverage and capacity planning of line-of-sight systems </li></ul><ul><li>Careful initial planning of fixed wireless access solutions needed for cost effectiveness and future scalability </li></ul><ul><li>Capacity planning with physically shared medium </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of access to optimal site locations may result in re-planning </li></ul>
  18. 23. Licensed Bands Required for assuring QoS and service reliability Generally preferred in heavily populated areas Network scalability under control of operator Operator predetermine impact of license fees on business case Fewer operators means less crowding Unlicensed Unlicensed spectrum in rural areas means lower cost for the end customer Fast roll outs – no need to wait for the licensing process Counters the lengthy licensing process
  19. 24. <ul><li>In most markets, the unlicensed spectrum that could be used for WiMAX is 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz. </li></ul><ul><li>Since the spectrum is unlicensed, the barrier to entry is low, thus making it easier for a potential operator to begin offering services using the spectrum. In some instances, this can be advantageous for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, there are also several disadvantages. In certain countries, in particular in Europe, the concept of &quot;light licensed&quot; spectrum applies, meaning that the intended user has to file its intent to use the unlicensed spectrum. </li></ul>
  20. 25. <ul><li>Interference - Because unlicensed spectrum can be used by several different RF </li></ul><ul><li>systems, there is a high probability of interference. Unlicensed RF systems can include anything from competing WiMAX networks or Wi-Fi access points. Cordless phones and Bluetooth (2.4GHz only) also use this spectrum </li></ul><ul><li>Increased Competition - Operators who use unlicensed spectrum have to assume that another operator could easily enter the market using the very same spectrum. In large part, the relatively high number of public Wi-Fi access points is due to this fact </li></ul><ul><li>Limited Power - Another disadvantage with the unlicensed spectrum is that government regulators typically limit the amount of power than can be transmitted. This limitation is especially important at 5.8GHz where the higher power could offset the propagation loss associated with spectrum in higher frequencies - more on this topic later. </li></ul><ul><li>Availability - While the 2.4GHz spectrum is universally available, the 5.8GHz spectrum is not currently available in a number of countries. </li></ul>
  21. 26. <ul><li>Licensed spectrum comes at a potentially high price, but it is well worth it, especially when the service offering requires high quality of service. </li></ul><ul><li>The greatest advantage of having licensed spectrum is that the licensee has exclusive use of the spectrum. It is protected from outside interference while competitors can only enter the market if they also own or lease spectrum. </li></ul><ul><li>The licensed spectrum is found at 700MHz, 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz, with the latter two frequency bands currently receiving the most attention. </li></ul>
  22. 27. <ul><li>Presently, this band is used by several organizations for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint microwave links, spread all over the country </li></ul><ul><li>2.3 Ghz used in korea only. </li></ul><ul><li>Re-location of such links would be necessary to make available spectrum for WiMax in this band. </li></ul>
  23. 28. <ul><li>Availability of adequate spectrum for WiMAX is constrained due to existing usages, especially by the INSAT based satellite operations. </li></ul><ul><li>2.5 GHz is ideally for both </li></ul><ul><li>Release of a part of the spectrum in this band may be explored by mutual consent. </li></ul>
  24. 29. <ul><li>Internationally, the frequency band 3.4-3.6GHz is used for WiMAX. </li></ul><ul><li>In India, availability of spectrum for WiMAX, in this band, is constrained due to use of lower extended C-band (3.4-3.7 GHz) by existing operational INSAT system. </li></ul><ul><li>Discussions with Department of Space is in progress for release/ sharing part of 3.4-3.6 GHz Band. </li></ul><ul><li>More no of Antennas </li></ul><ul><li>The 3.5GHz frequency band is currently available for use in virtually every country except the United States. In addition to the RF propagation challenges inherent to this band, many European licenses restrict how the spectrum can be used, since in this particular band cell handoffs are not currently allowed, which is not exactly ideal when trying to offer a mobile voice and data service that requires uninterrupted service for voice calls </li></ul>
  25. 30. <ul><li>The 700MHz spectrum band is heavily utilized in many regions of the world, including North America and most of Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>Internationally, this frequency band is used for other mobile technologies but it is also ideal for Wimax </li></ul><ul><li>Cell radius is larger here </li></ul>
  26. 31. <ul><li>Benefits of economies of scale - lower cost of equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>Interoperability and roaming of equipment and terminals Globally. </li></ul><ul><li>Success of WiFi and its world wide adoption is credited to the globally unified spectrum assignment in the 2.4 GHz band. The success of WiFi can be repeated in WiMAX by assigning globally harmonized spectrum bands. </li></ul>
