The fast-growing WiMAX industry is all set to define a new era of fixed and mobile broadband services and network access. Fixed-station WiMAX is already enjoying widespread deployment in order to provide last-mile access for broadband, IP-based services globally. Its successor, mobile-WiMAX, is currently undergoing further amendments by the IEEE (as of February 2007) but is already in initial manufacturing and beta-testing phases around the world. The growth of this industry has spurred several players to enter WiMAX development and/or deployment, thus increasing the need for versatile testing tools and techniques during the design, production and deployment cycles.

This paper introduces SeaMAX, SeaSolve Software’s Fixed- and Mobile-WiMAX RF Test and Measurement solutions suite.
