WiMAX & BT's 21st Century Network

Posted: 10th Jun, 2004 By: MarkJ
The next generation of hi-speed wireless networking, WiMAX, is also set to play a key role in BT's recently announced 21st Century Network plan:

Matt Beal, director of 21st Century Network implementation and strategy, told ZDNet UK on Wednesday that fibre and wireless will play an increased role in delivering broadband over the new network.

Beal said that WiMax wouldn't just be used to fill these rural gaps, but could also have a role in metropolitan areas. He declined to elaborate further on plans for 802.11d, but his comments could be seen as referring to those people who live in an ADSL-enabled are but who can't get the technology because their phone line is too long or of too poor quality

WiMax, also known as 802.16, is a high-speed wireless metropolitan area network (Wireless MAN) technology that provides broadband wireless connectivity to fixed, portable and nomadic users. It comes in two flavours -- 802.16d, which is used for fixed point-to-point networks, and 802.16e, which will support mobility.
