This is a unique report as it focuses on the three A's (access, affordability, and applications) when considering a WiMAX deployment. The author leverages his real-world experience of deploying a large-scale WiMAX system for a major metropolitan educational institution to instruct others about the many opportunities for WiMAX in education.
Not only is this a valuable resource for those seeking business drivers for WiMAX, his method of evaluating using the three A's can be used for any purpose to evaluate deployment issues and options.
This publication provides an easy-to-understand process for assessing the parameters for a school district-wide WiMAX deployment (access, affordability and applications). It provides case study analysis based on a project in progress in Palm Beach County, Fla. of TV over WiMAX, "controlled" Internet access, school financing/savings.
The reader may use the author's unique approach to the 3A's of WiMAX as a process and framework to determine feasibility and launch plan for any potential WiMAX project or application-driven deployment.
