WiMAX Fundamentals Short Course



June 18 - June 19, 2008
10:15 am - 5:30 pm 

WiMAX is the most promising new technology for broadband wireless access to IP services. It can serve an extraordinary range of applications and environments: data, voice, and multimedia; fixed and mobile; licensed and unlicensed. However, until now, wireless professionals have had little reliable information to guide them.

This course is brought to you by the authors of Fundamentals of WiMAX, the definitive book on WiMAX with over 10,000 copies sold in the last year and the first comprehensive guide to WiMAX- its technical foundations, features, and performance. The course will provide students with a broad understanding of WiMAX and will provide wireless engineers, network architects and system designers with the essential information for succeeding with WiMAX-from planning through deployment. For additional information on the WiMAX University.
