WiMAX Kills Satellite Communications?
I don’t know what is better, the fact hat WiMAX is so powerful that it could disrupt satellite communications, or that satellite communications weren’t thought about when developing WiMAX?
a report from the Satellite Users Interference Reduction Group (SUIRG). Apparently those folks found “conclusive” results of “unacceptable” levels of interference from WiMAX of satellite signals in the C-band. Naturally, it sounds like this group’s primary purpose is to come up with data like this to protect that satellite spectrum turf, but it’s disconcerting nonetheless
I don’t think this is something that will be a big deal, as WiMAX isn’t a very fast moving standard. By the time we have WiMAX in major cities, I am sure they will have this problem solved. To be honest, I don’t really care too much about satellites if I can have ubiquitous wireless access.
