pdf_gross.gif HSDPA vs. WIMAX – the Contest

backtotop.gifTraining Course Description

  • This training course has specifically been designed for a direct comparison between the two cutting edge technologies HSDPA and WIMAX.
  • The training course illustrates in detail how both technologies fulfill the required fast resource scheduling in the MAC-layer and what functions their physical layers provide.
  • We also discuss important questions like network integration options and evolution paths of both technologies
As in all INACON training courses we integrated several interactive exercises for a perfect learning experience.

Some of your questions that will be answered

  • How do both technologies compare considering their basic performance figures? How do the technologies compare with respect to spectrum efficiency (<-> bit/s/Hz)
  • How do the MAC-mechanisms of both technologies for fast resource scheduling and release compare?
  • Is the IMS ready to provide carrier-like telephony services through a WIMAX-based access network?
  • Is it already the right time to consider the establishment of WIMAX-access network based mobile networks?
  • Can a WIMAX access network be seamlessly integrated into an existing 3G-Core Network?

backtotop.gifWho should attend this class?

  • Technical decision takers and consultants who need to understand the pros and cons of both technologies.
  • Technical experts of either side who need to understand the other technology in more depth.


  • The student should possess detailed knowledge of wireless communications, particularly within the area of digital signal processing in wireless communications.
  • The student should be aware of the technical details of at least either technology, HSDPA or WIMAX.
  • Previous design experience in the area of GSM, CDMA or UMTS-equipment is a big plus.

backtotop.gifTraining Course Target

  • The student will understand the technical pros and cons of both technologies.
  • After the training course the student will be able to decide for a given configuration whether it makes technically and commercially sense to integrate WIMAX and/or HSDPA.
