Do I Need Special Equipment to Connect to Mobile WiMAX Networks?

Special equipment is needed to connect to mobile WiMAX1 networks. A single Intel wireless solution can deliver both WiMAX and Wi-Fi* access to your notebook. Look for Intel® Centrino® processor technology-based notebooks with Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250, Intel® WiMAX/WiFi Link 5150, or Intel® WiMAX/WiFi Link 5350 embedded wireless adapters.

There is no need to set up an access point, as in Wi-Fi, or other access device. All you need is your WiMAX-enabled device and either a subscription or pay-as-you-go plan, and you can connect to a network maintained by a service provider offering WiMAX service in your area.

1 WiMAX connectivity requires a WiMAX-enabled device and subscription to a WiMAX broadband service. WiMAX connectivity may require you to purchase additional software or hardware at extra cost. Availability of WiMAX is limited; check with your carrier for details on availability and network limitations. Broadband performance and results may vary due to environmental factors and other variables. See WiMAX Technology for more information.
