Pleasanton, CA -- Marcel Bellingue, Manager of Marketing and Communications for the CTO organization (Commonwealth Telecommunications Organization) in London, England said its members, like many other national and international membership engineering and technology organizations, want to know how to build WIMAX networks.
The question seems easy enough, but as many new engineers have discovered, the reality is very different. NetworkAnatomy, a northern California wireless communications company, has taken the lead, on-line, in providing a free reality engineering education series via its monthly OnLine-CTO emagazine. The training not only comes from its own WIMAX engineering efforts but also from subscribers around the world who have offered their stories and perspectives. While there exist documentation of some WIMAX certified equipment and private training, WIMAX remains unknown in a hands-on sense.
Internationally, WIMAX versions have been out for several years with deployment figures from 60,000 to 90,000 systems across the four WIMAX certified equipment vendors thus far. Hands-on engineering training remains difficult to find or obtain. In the US, the number of WIMAX deployments is probably less than 10% of the international figures. While you can run out and purchase reference books on Standards and Regulations surrounding WIMAX, you can not as easily purchase real "how to" books on WIMAX, especially in the United States, simply because it is much too new and still unsettled.
London based CTO's membership as of April 2005 is a combination of 33 countries as full members, 8 additional Associated National members, and 10 other Associated Territory members. Its members are representatives of governments and private corporate partners of countries from Bangladesh to the United Kingdom, all seeking to obtain real world education, as many others, in designing and building WIMAX networks, the latest communications trend.
Presenting WIMAX reality education, NetworkAnatomy's effort is simplified using their On-Line CTO emagazine as the delivery vehicle for the initial Primer, which lays the foundation for the next few "how to" installments. Rich with reference material and skill tests, in a logic flow, the real world information is instantly useable.
