LiMAX: Long Range IP Microwave Access
LiMAX is a radio transmission system for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint applications. It is used for cablefree transmission of broadband data over long distances. Computers, routers and /or modems of any kind can be connected to the Ethernet interface made available by the LiMAX terminal.
Due to its low power requirements LiMAX can also be operated by means of alternative power supplies such as wind and solar energy or fuel cells. The LiMAX system is available for operation in the ISM frequency band at 2.4 GHz. In many countries a special operational approval (frequency license) is not required for this frequency range. The data rate is configurable up to approx. 500 kbs, whereby a good compromise can be established between interference resistance, range and the required data rate.
