2 1 Introduction to WiMAX

3 Confidential Information Worldwide Broadband Market Growth Broadband Growth rate exceeding Mobile Growth

4 Confidential Information BWA Follows DSL Trend (000s) Source: Yankee Group Global Subscribers

5 Confidential Information Market Indicators Worldwide Broadband (BB) subscribers will grow from 60M in 2002 to 270M in 2008(ABI) Intels Centrino TM Mobile Technology ramp exceeds Expectations Extensive Worldwide Hotspot growth to 350,000 locations by 2008 (ABI) Huge Chipset vendors (Intel & Fujitsu) are developing WiMAX based chips WiMAX chipset will be integrated into Laptops starting from 2006

6 Confidential Information BWA Market is Changing… 2 nd Generation Technology economical, high quality wire line alternative Regulation Evolution Increased allocation of Licensed and Unlicensed bands The Huge Demand to serve White Zones & DSL Refugees Acceleration Stage Standardized Technology IEEE

7 Confidential Information Evolution of Broadband Wireless From Wireless LAN to Access, from Proprietary to Standard Solutions

11 Confidential Information The Opportunity presented by WiMAX WiMAX has the opportunity to become one of the main stream mobile solution Different frequencies Wider channel size WiMAX enables the new personal, true broadband, real- time applications Video streaming On-line, multi-user gaming WiMAX all-IP infrastructure for FMC services Reuse wireline broadband innovation & content

12 Confidential Information WiMAX Benefits Component makers Creates a volume opportunity for silicon suppliers Equipment makers No longer need to develop every piece of the end-to-end solution Can innovate more rapidly Operators Standards-based equipment means more cost-effective CPEs Multiple equipment suppliers and lower costs = lower investment risk Quickly provision E1+ level and on demand high-margin broadband Scalable; remote management; supports differentiated service levels Consumers More choices for getting broadband access Support for voice, data, video

13 Confidential Information WiMAX - 4 Years and Growing WiMAX Forum Members Ecosystem/Applications Spring Today 332 Estimated Engineers Working on WiMAX Today Approaching 7,500 Engineers Components And Systems Services Networks Spring 2004 Less than 500 Engineers Components And Systems Service Providers Silicon/Component Suppliers System Vendors Source: WiMAX Forum (based on Intel estimates)

15 Confidential Information WiMAX Mission Statement WiMAX is the next revolutionary technology after WiFi! Writing test specs Qualifying test labs Certifying products Focus on interoperability The purpose of WiMAX is to promote deployment of broadband wireless access networks by using a global standard and certifying interoperability of products and technologies

16 Confidential Information WiMAX Industry Structure System Vendors can focus on system design – yielding faster innovation and better price- performance Post-Standard Service Providers Equipment Manufacturers Volume Silicon Supplier Radio Supplier Specialized Network Mgmt Software Supplier System Integration System vendors must develop too many layers of the stack – yielding a more costly, vertical solution. Pre-Standard Service Providers System Design & Architecture Custom MAC Modified PHY or Custom Network Software System Integration Radio Supplier

17 Confidential Information WiMAX Benefits Component makers Creates a volume opportunity for silicon suppliers Equipment makers No longer need to develop every piece of the end-to-end solution Can innovate more rapidly Operators Multiple equipment suppliers and lower costs = lower investment risk Generate revenue by filling broadband access gaps Quickly provision E1+ level and on demand high margin broadband services Consumers More choices for getting broadband access

19 Confidential InformationGeography Where will fixed and mobile systems deploy ? FWA: Developed countries: Rural & suburban Developing countries: Urban & suburban Mobile: Urban & suburban FWA and Mobile will co-exist In Urban (majority) and possibly Sub-urban areas

20 Confidential InformationFrequencies What frequencies will FWA & Mobile use? Typically different frequencies (similar to cellular evolution) Current allocated frequencies (3.5GHz etc.) are granted for FWA only Governments would typically charge additional licensing for mobile (especially after charging all existing mobile applications) ETSI is working with regulators in order to grant a new frequency for mobile, especially due to the fact that the existing 3.5GHz frequency is already occupied in most places. May reuse the already existing licensed band (depending on local allocation and usage) FWA and Mobile will most likely operate in different frequencies

21 Confidential Information Deployment Scenarios What are the deployment scenarios of FWA & Mobile ? FWA deployments consists of smaller no. of medium sized cells (5-6km), which are maximal coverage driven Mobile deployment consists of large no. of small cells (1-3km) which are capacity and continuous coverage driven Mobile/portable devices typically have lower output power, which limits the possible cell range FWA and Mobile will use different deployment scenarios

22 Confidential Information And What About 3G ? 3G has at least 2 years head start over the WiMAX mobility Many mobile operators are already heavily invested in 3G (licenses & equipment wise) What will happen when Mobile WiMAX is introduced ? Voice GPRS 3G WiMAX Mobility cake CAPACITY

23 Confidential InformationSummary While Moving from FWA to Mobile … FWA and Mobile will operate Using different frequencies Using different coverage scenarios Using different capacity planning scenarios Using different protocols (at least at the beginning) However will reuse The FWA as backhauling for mobile cells The same Backhauling and NMS
