WiMAX for Small College

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Kip McSkipster, Oct 31, 2007.

  1. Not sure if anyone here can answer this, but I work at a small (~1300
    students) college in the Boston area. The college's network
    infrastructure is aging, and only a small portion of the (suburban)
    campus has wireless access.

    I know very little about WiMAX, but offhand, would it be appropriate
    for a campus of about 72 acres, with 25 buildings or so?

    Thanks,

    Kip

    No.

    WiMax typically uses licensed spectrum (although it is also possible
    to use unlicensed spectrum) and the cost to obtain the spectrum rights
    would be next to impossible, much less affordable.
