Description
There is currently great interest in mobile and wireless communications services, with 3rd generation (3G) mobile systems being rolled-out globally, and with the proliferation of WiFi hotspots and their increasing use. While 3G systems, clearly provide for enhanced services than their GSM predecessors, it is already apparent that the highest bandwidth available to a user (2 Mb/s) is insufficient for the transfer of some data types (e.g. high definition video) and that this bandwidth is rarely available anyway in a network supporting many users. Many companies are already looking to technologies such as WiMAX as possible alternatives for providing high bandwidth ...
