According to some estimates, by 2010 WiMAX operators will cover areas inhabited by more than 650 million people. Yet current deployment lags similar previous expectations and predictions. Moreover, non-vendor, third-party empirical evaluations of the technology are far from common. We recently concluded our VoIP and IPTV synthetic traffic measurement and analysis studies over fixed WiMAX at the VTT Converging Networks Laboratory in Oulu, Finland, and briefly report our results here. Moreover, we review our simulation-based studies of extending WiMAX in demanding, mountainous terrains, which are not considered to be the main target deployment environments.
