Abstract

According to some estimates, by 2010WiMAX operators will cover areas inhabited by more than 650 million people; however, current deployment is not meeting previous expectations and predictions. Moreover, non-vendor, third-party empirical evaluations of the technology are far from common. In fact, most WiMAX studies have up to now solely employed simulation, modeling and analytical tools. It is not really well understood what is in practice possible with Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS)WiMAX equipment. This chapter presents results from our recently concluded baseline, VoIP and IPTV synthetic traffic measurement and analysis studies over WiMAX at the VTT Converging Networks Laboratory (CNL) in Oulu, Finland, and aims at contributing to our understanding about the potential of WiMAX in practice.
