Following the International Telecommunication Union (ITU)'s late 2010 approval of WirelessMAN-Advanced 802.16m as IMT-Advanced, today the IEEE threw its weight behind the new standard, too. One of the core requirements of IMT-Advanced is extremely fast speeds. According to the IEEE, 802.16m WirelessMAN-Advanced delivers peak download speeds of 180Mbps using a 20MHz TDD channel while simultaneously supporting 2,500 VoIP users per cell site. IEEE 802.16m incorporates multi-user MIMO, multicarrier operation, and cooperative communications. It supports femto-cells, self-organizing networks, and relays. Organizations, such as the WiMax Forum, are adopting this standard for metro-area wireless broadband networks.
