WiMAX CPE transceivers' role in base station apps
The wireless industry divides base stations into several broad and overlapping categories based on maximum output power and coverage area. The design examples that follow use the power output estimates. Price and equipment size are critical in all types of cells. Femtocell basestations require low cost and small size just to be viable in the market; while picocell and macrocell basestations have a distinct market advantage when their price and size beat the competition. Single-chip transceivers help to reduce both price and size, but these advantages only apply if the base station meets its performance requirements.
