A new, more varied radio access network (RAN) topology is emerging, driven by the availability of new technologies, more demanding performance, coverage and cost requirements, and innovative business models. The traditional ground-based, multi-sector macro base transceiver station (BTS) is rapidly losing its dominant position to single-sector micro and pico BTSs with a smaller footprint, and to distributed multi-sector BTSs with remote radio heads (RRHs).

WiMAX is only available for licensed bands (2.3 GHz, 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz and others in the future) for which a certification program has been defined by the WiMAX Forum. What if an operator wants to use the same core technology (the IEEE 802.16 standard is defined for any spectrum band up to 6 GHz) in an unlicensed band such as the 5 GHz band or the US 3.65 GHz ones? Of course the equipment will not be certified, but it can still provide the functionality and performance of WiMAX technology.
