Wireless Broadband Technologies: Disadvantages
7. Smart antenna and Mesh Topology: The use of smart
antenna in WiMAX network offering high quality widest array,
which enable you to make possible communication on long
route without any encryption. It offers 2.3, 2.7, and 3.3,
3.8GHz frequency ranges. The use of Mesh topology in WiMAX
network for the expansion is an extensive spectrum of antennas
for commercial as well as for residential users
8. Ultra wide Band: The unique and excellent infrastructure
of WiMAX is offering Ultra-Wideband. Its exclusive design
is providing range from 2 to 10 GHz and outstanding time
9. Homeland Security: Security options of WiMAX Technology
also offer very high security because of encryption system
used by WiMAX. The WiMAX is providing exclusive homeland
security. Now you can exchange your data on whole network
without any fear of losing data.
10. Lack of history: WiMAX vendor technology has lack
of history within mobile industry for protection. WiMAX
push the existing technologies and forward on steady stream.
Only WiMAX technology offers first major mobile standard
to all mobile broadband infrastructures. It is a foremost
mobile transporter. WiMAX technology support both wireless
and wired network including cable operator which are now
successful due to core networks of WiMAX.
1. Lack of Quality: The WiMAX network has lack of quality
service because there are hundreds of people trying to get
access at the same tower so due to heavy traffic it is very
hard to maintain high quality.
2. WiMAX range: The other disadvantage of WiMAX network
is range. As WiMAX offer 70Mbps in range with moving station
but in practice it is quite different because it is possible
only in specify or ideal circumstances. If a user staying
away from the specified environment then speed can drop
3. WiMAX Bandwidth: Like other network Bandwidth is collective
amongst clients in a specified zone. But if there are a
lot of users in one area the speed decreases which may be
2 to 10 Mbps of shared bandwidth.
