Technology Training: WiMAX Systems

Target Audience
This class is essential for managers and engineers that work with this technology.


Wireless Communications Overview and Fundamentals or equivalent knowledge.


WiMAX was the first outdoor broadband technology to be specified and has been deployed successfully over the world. It is a mature technology that addresses data transmission issues. This technology is data-centric and requires many new concepts to support it. Traditional concepts were replaced or extended to cope with issues such as SLA (Service Level Agreement), data rate, tonnage, QoS, latency and many others. Network design is much more complex as a result of multiple service classes, adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), MIMO antenna techniques and OFDM-based carriers. This class covers the fundamentals of this technology.
