    2. 2. Agenda: <ul><li>Mobile wireless Internet market demand </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile Internet service requirements </li></ul><ul><li>WiMAX is a cornerstone for Next-Generation of </li></ul><ul><li>mobile Internet services </li></ul><ul><li>How the WiMAX Forum is driving the adoption of </li></ul><ul><li>Anytime, Anywhere Connectivity </li></ul><ul><li>Operator commitments to deploy WiMAX </li></ul>
    3. 3. Anytime, Anywhere The Demand is Real
    4. 4. Broadband Market has Significant Upside Broadband Usage Growing Faster Than We Have Seen in Other Emerging Technologies Sources: Internet World Stats, Wireless Intelligence, Point Topic thousands of subscribers Gap
    5. 5. Growth and Revenue are in Data Services Voice Revenues Growing at a 4.7% CAGR Data Revenues Growing at a 30.7% CAGR Smart Phones Feature Phones Voice Phones Sources: IDC, Web-Feet Research 0% 100% 50% ‘ 03 ‘ 05 ‘ 06 ‘ 07 ‘ 08 ‘ 04 ‘ 09 ‘ 02
    6. 6. Service Requirements for High-Speed Internet Success <ul><li>Easy-to-use </li></ul><ul><li>Affordable </li></ul><ul><li>Works on variety user device form-factors </li></ul><ul><li>Supports multiple usage models </li></ul><ul><li>Deliver broadband experience similar to fixed </li></ul><ul><li>Supports many applications (data, voice, video) over IP </li></ul><ul><li>Global roaming </li></ul>
    7. 7. One Platform For All Internet Connectivity Enterprise Intranets IMS Services Network Wireline Application servers - “own” applications - Hosted applications IMS OSA / Web Services IMS Signaling, Policy and Charging Functions Core Network Internet WiFi 2G 3G WiMAX
    8. 8. System Requirements to Answer Demand Rich All-IP Multimedia Content VoIP-Interactive A/V-TCP Data Coverage/Capacity Anytime, Indoor/Outdoor Scalability Networks, Devices, Mobility User/Operator Needs Cellular & Broadband Ecosystems <ul><li>High Link Budget </li></ul><ul><li>High Spectral Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Adaptive Channel Utilization </li></ul><ul><li>Extended Battery Life </li></ul><ul><li>Tiers of mobility </li></ul><ul><li>Interworking </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple frequencies </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple channel widths </li></ul><ul><li>High Peak/Average Data Rates </li></ul><ul><li>Low Latency, Jitter, Delay </li></ul><ul><li>High Link Reliability, Symmetry </li></ul><ul><li>Seamless Mobility </li></ul>System Requirements
    9. 9. WiMAX is a Cornerstone For Next-Generation of Broadband Connectivity
    10. 10. Why WiMAX? <ul><li>Delivers wireless broadband anytime, anywhere </li></ul><ul><li>Internet technology from the ground up </li></ul><ul><li>One common standard d elivers a global platform for mobile Internet services </li></ul><ul><li>Delivers the highest capacity and greatest throughput at the lowest cost - OFDMA </li></ul>
    11. 11. Wireless Technologies are Evolving to OFDMA OFDMA offers better spectral efficiency – Directly translates to higher throughput and capacity SPECTRUM EFFICIENCY SIMPLIFIES ADVANCED RF TECHNIQUES LEVERAGES BANDWIDTH OPTIMIZES SPECTRUM ALLOCATION Delivered Throughput Early ’90s Mid-’90s Early ’00s Mid-’00s GSM CDMA OFDMA
    12. 12. WiMAX is NOT a Cellular Voice Replacement <ul><li>WiMAX was not developed to compete with cellular voice market </li></ul>WiMAX WILL Complement 3G Data Services <ul><li>WiMAX is a technology choice delivering high-capacity and high-throughput data services </li></ul>
    13. 13. Contrasting Wi-Fi / WiMAX / Cellular <ul><li>CSMA/CA </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient for unpredictable traffic in an unlicensed band </li></ul><ul><li>Inefficient for predictable traffic (voice) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Sharing model” designed for unlicensed band </li></ul><ul><li>No control of resource allocation policy </li></ul>2G/3.xG Cellular <ul><li>Packet overlays but based on slot based, circuit switched resource allocation </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient for voice traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Inefficient for bursty traffic (email, http) </li></ul>Wi-Fi WiMAX <ul><li>Fast dynamic scheduling </li></ul><ul><li>Contention access for bandwidth requests only </li></ul><ul><li>Resource allocation exclusively by BS – retains tight policy control by network </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient for both bursty, unpredictable traffic and voice </li></ul>WiMAX is the Optimal Solution for Mobile Internet
    14. 14. Benefits of a WiMAX All-IP Network <ul><li>Increased Revenue: rapid roll-out of advanced services </li></ul><ul><li>Lower CAPEX and OPEX </li></ul><ul><li>Higher Compatibility, Lower Complexity </li></ul><ul><li>Simplified internetworking with other IP technologies </li></ul><ul><li>WiMAX fits easily into wired and wireless ecosystem </li></ul>Internet IP Core PSTN ASP BS BS BS
