Beyond Wi-Max: Wi-Bro Coming

For the upcoming Winter Olympics to be held in Turin in February 2006, Telecom Italia and Samsung have signed an agreement to test, for the very first time in Italy, WiBro (Wireless Broadband) technology, now considered to be the most feared enemy of Wi-Max, the last frontier in terms of Wi-Fi.

Wi-Bro was developed in Korea and it can trasmit signals in a variable radius ranging from 1 to 5 Km with a capacity between 30 and 50 Mbit/s and can also function on moving client PDA's or laptops, at a maximum speed of 120 Km/h (suitable for cars).

Wi-Bro uses radio frequencies which require a license, which is somewhat a limit to its wide adoption but which on the other hand protect quality of signal by assigning frequencies in way that there can be no interference with other operators.
