WiMAX experimentation


In 2005 WiMAX (IEEE 802.16) was considered a key radio access network solution with a potential huge impact on the way ISP and other actors could provide broadband connectivity to users, especially in rural and remote regions. In order to understand the impact of this technology based on the usage of 3.5 GHz radio spectrum, a WiMAX experimentation was promoted by the Communication Ministry in Italy. CREATE-NET has been performing one year experimentation in Piemonte in collaboration with CSP and several other partners (2M, Essentia, SIRTI).
