A Peek at The First 802.16a WMAN Compliant Product

Redline Communications of Ontario, Canada has shown the first 802.16a WMAN-compliant product at this month's Geneva ITU Telecom World Conference. The solution, dubbed AN-100, operates in 3.5 GHz and offers a throughput of 70 Mbps with a range of up to 30 km. The product will work for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint deployments, and is currently in trials with major carriers. The IEEE approved the amendment to the 802.16 standard in January 2003 in order to address non-line-of-sight (NLOS) requirements in outdoor broadband wireless applications. 802.16a will likely boost WMANs just as 802.11b pushed WLANs. The standard operates in the licensed and unlicensed frequencies between 2 GHz and 11 GHz using OFDM, which is also used by the 802.11a and 802.11g standards. 802.16a has not yet been certified by the WiMax Forum, the industry association backing the standard.
