Although I was thinking to write my experience of the conflict between Wimax and Satelite which I am facing but when I googled I found pre written words as per the problem which I am facing.
Guys please suggest some sort of solution. Whenever I am using doing any activity on Wimax then the signals begin to have distortion which clearly shows these two technologies have some sort of conflict.
Here at Near Earth, we focus on digital communications, which in its many forms includes satellite broadcasting/telecom as well as broadband wireless access (BWA), such as WiMax and similar technologies. While satellite is the older of these two technologies, both have provided and continue to provide substantial public benefit and financial returns to investors. But in a shrinking world where finite spectrum resources are
relentlessly being taxed to carry more and more information, it was probably inevitable that two of our favorite technologies would find themselves in conflict.
And so, now we find an increasing brouhaha emerging over pending allocation of the 3.5 GHz band (as WiMax proponents like to call this potential source of spectrum for expansion) and the C-band (as satellite proponents like to call it). Depending on how this is resolved, the fortunes of satellite builders (e.g. Loral, Orbital Sciences) and operators (Intelsat, SES, etc.) could be pitted against emerging broadband wireless manufacturers (Motorola, Alvarion, etc.) and operators (e.g. Sprint, ClearWire, Wireless Australia, etc.).
The sources of this conflict lie in the technical approaches used by BWA and satellite users. BWA networks use a combination of base stations and individual fixed and mobile terminals that transmit radiation at strengths that can overwhelm or degrade the much weaker signals from satellites. This interference can come from both the strong in-band (i.e. within the licensed spectrum) emissions from a tower, or the weaker out-
of-band (immediately adjacent to the licensed spectrum) emissions. In the case of the former type of interference, where the signals are stronger, satellite receivers as far as tens of miles from the transmitter can be affected. Even in cases where the emissions are unintended (and thus much weaker), interference can extend for over a mile. When
roaming users of the 802.16e standards (mobile WiMax) are added to the mix, the potential for interference is substantial. The figure below shows C-band earth stations registered with Intelsat, a large satellite operator – a fraction of the overall total.
Please suggest some sort of solution.
