The first WiMAX 2 tests showed 330 Mbps

Although LTE networks in most countries have not even been launched yet, the development of the next generation wireless communication standard is in full swing: WiMAX 2 ( 802.16m ).

It has not yet been officially approved, but this does not prevent manufacturers from developing prototypes of wireless modems. At CEATEC IT, which is taking place in Japan this week, Samsung held the first public demonstration of WiMAX 2, during which a data transfer rate of 330 Mbps was recorded.

During the demonstration a live broadcast of 3D HD-video was conducted over a wireless network.

The WiMAX 2 standard should replace the current WiMAX (802.16e) and become a worthy competitor to LTE. It is supported by an alliance of computer companies, including Intel, Motorola and Samsung. The IEEE Institute is required to approve 802.16m in November 2010, and during 2011 to certify devices. Thus, the commercial operation of WiMAX 2 will be possible approximately from 2012.
The emergence of higher-speed wireless standards is quite in demand by the market. According to Cisco analysts, mobile Internet traffic in the world will double annually and by 2013 will grow to 2.2 million terabytes per month. Basically, by increasing the share of video in mobile traffic from 39% in 2008 to 64%. For five years, video traffic for mobile devices will grow more than 100 times.
