WiMAX Strategic Capex Model for Mobile Subscribers
This advanced Excel-based Capex model is for operators. It is designed as a planning tool for strategy and planning a WiMAX Mobile network deployment. Allowing a variety of strategic input scenarios (i.e. variables for the amount of area under service, coverage footprint and type of subscribers, etc.), some of the questions that can be answered with this tool include:
- How much infrastructure (base station, etc.) is needed?
- What impact does changing the coverage area have?
- What impact does penetration (uptake) of subscribers have?
- What happens when the maximum data rate is changed?
- What is the impact on changing the frequency and amount of spectrum?
- What impact does the Spectrum cost-per-MHz-pop have?
The WIMAX Mobile Strategic Capex Model addresses on street, as well as in-building mobile subscribers. The model allows you to pick and choose Dense Urban, Urban, Suburban and or Rural Area(s) version(s) of the model (see description of Areas below), based upon the morphology classification of the area(s) where you plan to rollout your WiMax network. Each Area is password protected and can be enabled by purchasing the relevant area.
This model allows inputs of various parameters over a 10 year cycle and includes the following inputs:
- Selectively password enable Dense Urban, Urban, Suburban and or Rural Areas
- Input- Dense Urban, Urban, Suburban and Rural- Coverage Area
- Input how quickly each of these area(s) will be covered
- Input - Dense Urban, Urban, Suburban and or Rural Areas Subscriber numbers
- Input the Uptake (Penetration) rate for the subscribers in each area
- Select Maximum Data Rate / Sub
- Input Revenue / Sub
- Input your equipment pricing
- Select frequency of operation
- Select the amount of bandwidth
- Input Spectrum cost-per-MHz-pop
The model takes in these parameters and provides a list of equipment needed for street as well as in-building mobile subscribers, including:
- How much traffic is supported? Average data rate per sub?
- Additional Base stations are needed for coverage or capacity?
- How much potential Revenue can be generated?
- How much Funding is required for the Capital equipment (Base Station, Backhaul, Bundled Network Management and Data Network and Customer Premises Equipment)?
Cash Flow (Revenue - Funding) over the 10-year cycle. Included is the breakeven point when cash flow goes from negative (red) to positive (black) and NPV of the cash flow which can be calculated based upon various interest rates

Format: Microsoft Excel
- Dense Urban Area is considered to the Area of the city with side by side high rise building
- Urban Area is considered to be the Area with mostly high rise buildings not necessarily side by side
- Suburban Area is considered to be the Area of the city with one or two story buildings with a mix of residential and business
- Rural Area is considered to be the Area with one or two story buildings sparsely spaced with large open areas in between
