As you know, I don’t think the technology of LTE vs. WiMAX is half as
important as the issues of applications. I had the benefit of meeting
with the Axxcelera folks and we got on the subject of government
applications. Video Surveillance specifically, and I was not allowed
to say more.
Which of course prompted me to do this video.
What I enjoyed about the full duplex nature of the system is that it
enables some very interactive camera movement and who knows what else
big brother would want to do. Ignoring the paranoia, the overall
effect of having such a system is pretty compelling to me.
Here are some of the other characteristics. While it is WiMAX it’s
designed more for some private solutions operating between 3.3-3.8 GHz
spectrum and supports a Full Duplex FDD (Frequency Division Duplex)
architecture. It does not need line of sight and supports error
checking and other quality management characteristics.
It could also be used for voice (VoIP) services given its full duplex nature.
