learntelecoms interactive E-learning suite of courses: Course WMA: WiMAX radio networks
An understanding of the fundamentals of radio communications. It is suggested that the PTT on- line course MBA: Introduction to mobile systems is studied before attempting this WiMAX course.
To give an introduction to WiMAX, the technology which provides fixed and mobile broadband services for applications including fast Internet access and wireless telephony. The course enables the user to appreciate its possibilities and problems and to place WiMAX in the competitive broadband radio marketplace.
Course objectives: At the end of this course, the trainee will be able to: describe what WiMAX is and which organisations are involved in its development.
describe the scope and significance of the IEEE 802.16 standards with reference to testing and certification.
compare proprietary systems like WiBro (Wireless Broadband).
describe what WiMAX can do with reference to ‘Enhanced’ WiFi, backhauls, wireless local loop, disaster relief and quadruple play services for residential customers.
describe how WiMAX works with reference to WiMAX PHY and MAC layers and the Internet Protocol (IP).
describe and compare the duplex systems FDD and TDD. discuss frequency allocations for Wimax and the opportunities for frequency sharing with UHF TV. describe and compare the principles of the radio modulation systems OFDM and SOFDMA.
describe the role and basic principles of adaptive antenna systems (AAS) and multiple-in, multiple- out (MIMO).
describe the role and basic principles of error correction with reference to FEC and HARQ. describe the role and developments in mobile multi-hop relay (MMR). explain that the latest version of WiMAX meets the ITU specification for advanced mobile systems.
describe how competition from other broadband services is affecting the market for WiMAX with particular reference to LTE.
