This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' A Performance Comparison of Mobile WiMAX Spectrums: 2.5 GHz vs. 3.65 GHz ' Mobile WiMAX is a popular broadband solution with diverse applications. In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) currently issues licenses for Mobile WiMAX in several frequency bands, of which 2.5 GHz and 3.65 GHz are the most prevalent. A significant amount of research has been conducted in the domain of 2.5 GHz due to its widespread commercial use. However, no such work - academic or industrial - has been reported for 3.65 GHz, in spite of it being a more favorable option for many applications, particularly because of its licensing requirements. In this paper, we present a comprehensive comparison of these two frequency bands in order to provide benchmark results for use by network planners, engineers and researchers. Our analysis indicates that, while 2.5 GHz Mobile WiMAX generally offers a larger coverage area, the attractive licensing options for 3.65 GHz may present an interesting alternative for many deployment scenarios and applications.
