2/28/2005 - Wi-LAN will present a special webinar about OFDM - March 8 at 11:00 EST/8:00 PST. The webinar will present everything you ever wanted to know and more about Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing, the foundation of the highest performance proprietary broadband equipment, and of course, the foundation of WiMAX. If you are interested in WiMAX, broadband wireless or even 802.11a and 802.11g, you should participate in this webinar.
Wi-LAN is the chair company of the OFDM Forum (www.ofdm-forum.com) and a charter member of the WiMAX Forum (www.wimaxforum.org).
OFDM is the underlying technology that will enable the metropolitan area network (MAN) and true mobile wireless networking. Wi-LAN's Ron Murias, Manager of Applied Research and Development, will take you into the world of OFDM.
Wi-LAN's Wideband Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (W-OFDM) is a transmission scheme that enables data to be encoded on multiple high-speed radio frequencies concurrently. This allows for greater security, increased amounts of data being sent, and the industries most efficient use of bandwidth. W-OFDM is the basis of the IEEE standard 802.11a, which is the foundation of the proposed IEEE standard 802.16. It is a patented technology in the United States under patent number 5,282,222 and in Canada under patent number 2,064,975. W-OFDM technology is currently used in Wi-LAN's broadband wireless access systems.
W-OFDM enables the implementation of low power multipoint RF networks that minimize interference with adjacent networks. This reduced interference enables independent channels to operate within the same band allowing multipoint networks and point-to-point backbone systems to be overlaid in the same frequency band.
