  22. 22. Update from WiMAX Forum Global Congress (1 of 2) First Mobile WiMAX Wave 2 products certified at 2.5GHz (Finally!!!). WiMAX Forum Stamp received by 8 suppliers for a total of ten products complying to Wave 2 Phase 1 certification in channel bandwidths of 5MHz and 10MHz. Wave 2 Phase 1 incorporates nearly 42% to 82% of the various tests outlined for Release 1.0 Wave 2 requirements. Wave 2 Phase 2 incorporates all test procedures for Base Station and Mobile Station certification of Protocol Conformance Testing, Radio Conformance Testing and Interoperability Testing. WiMAX Forum will begin to accept certification for Fixed WiMAX 3.5GHz equipment by Q3 2008, with testing beginning in Q4 2008 and certification achieved by the end of 2008. 22
  23. 23. Update from WiMAX Forum Global Congress (2 of 2) Baltimore will have the first commercial service of Xohm in September 2008 followed by Washington DC and Chicago by Q4 2008 (provided the new WiMAX venture ‘ClearWire’ deal closes by Q4 2008). Sprint Nextel and ClearWire better get their act right as Clearwire had an accumulated net loss of $1.19 billion and owed $1.26 billion in debt at the end of 2007, with Sprint Nextel having a $20.5 billion debt load. Open Patent Alliance (OPA) has been formed with founding members Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Intel, Samsung, Sprint Nextel and ClearWire. - But will QUALCOMM join OPA? WiMAX Forum estimates that 100+ Mobile WiMAX products will be certified by the end of 2008, and by 2011, 1000+ products will undergo Mobile WiMAX certification. 23

  25. 25. Challenges for Mobile WiMAX
  26. 26. Key Challenges for Mobile WiMAX MIMO Antennas (Size and Weight Factor) Sir, where do you want me to install this 2x2 MIMO base station? IPR pertaining to Mobile WiMAX still ambiguous Delays to Spectrum Auction Challenges WiMAX roaming agreements Battery Life of Client Devices (The Roaming Readiness Program in December 2008 will address this issue) Co-existence of Mobile WiMAX with existing cellular technologies and WiMAX to Wi-Fi roaming (vice-versa) 26
  27. 27. Voice Capacity for Mobile WiMAX Mobile WiMAX loses 80% of its sector capacity at 30 VoIP users per sector Source: QUALCOMM 27
  28. 28. Battery Life of Client Devices Power Added Efficiency (PAE) is the ratio between the power input into the power amp, and the signal output power, and is a key performance index for evaluating power amps. A low PAE means that a large fraction of input power is consumed as heat or otherwise wasted. Power amps for mobile phones, for example, offer PAEs of 40% to 45% for wideband code division multiple access (W-CDMA), and 50% to 55% for Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM). For Mobile WiMAX, though, the PAE is only 10% to 20%. Hence, 3G LTE has chosen Single-Carrier FDMA (SC-FDMA) as its uplink technology to overcome challenges faced by Mobile WiMAX using OFDMA. 28
  29. 29. IPR Issues for Mobile WiMAX No single company has a dominant IPR Position in Mobile WiMAX 1550 Patents are distributed among 330 companies QUALCOMM is one of them ☺ Of the 23 Companies that hold more than 10 Patents…74% are WiMAX Forum members, representing 82% of the patents held in concentrations of 11 or more patents per company Source: Schwegman, Lundberg, Woessner & Kluth, WiMAX Forum 29
  30. 30. Delays in European Spectrum Auctions Source: Ericsson 30
  31. 31. Next Steps for Mobile WiMAX
  32. 32. Key Questions to Ponder on… Would Mobile WiMAX be a suitable alternative to 3G or a complementary extension to 3G? Should one wait for WiMAX Forum certified products or opt for pre-Mobile WiMAX equipment gear? Would it be feasible to use Mobile WiMAX for fixed, nomadic and portable services (pertaining to data) and have an MVNO agreement with the cellular operators for mobile voice services? What kind of applications (Killer application?) can be triggered by Mobile WiMAX and will it focus on the Enterprise or Consumer? Can Mobile WiMAX provide good in-building coverage at 2.5GHz or does one need to also consider femtocells? Will one have enough spectrum to cover a reasonable population and compete with existing alternatives? Considering an RoI for Mobile WiMAX is likely to between 3 to 5 years, is it worth the risk? Where will the extra funds come from? 32
  33. 33. Conclusion: Mobile WiMAX Not Quite There Yet ! If you compare Mobile WiMAX and 3G LTE, they are more or less similar based on OFDMA ; Main difference is, it is pushed by 2 separate camps. However, Mobile WiMAX is a ratified standard today, 3G LTE is not. Mobile WiMAX + 3G LTE merger: Could potentially happen in 2009 ! The initial client devices for Mobile WiMAX will be laptops and UMPC’s in 2008 with smartphones in 2009/2010. Not all operators are keen on deploying MIMO+Beamforming base stations. Delays in spectrum auctioning will go against the lead time that Mobile WiMAX has over 3G LTE. If WiMAX operators and terminal vendors focus more on the technology and not on enhancing the user experience, then end-users will not be able to understand and differentiate from existing wireless service alternatives. WiMAX terminal vendors need to start thinking of iPhone version 3.0 today ! 33
  34. 34. Thanks for Your Attention ! Any Questions? Officer, the reason why I put up a mini WiMAX base station on top of my car was to get high Hey Steve, let us know quality video feed of the traffic in Victoria on when them iPMaX my Mobile WiMAX device ! phones are out awrite !!! 34
