The Significance of WiMax on Resource Sharing among Saudi Universities: A Study of King Khalid University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Saeed Q. Y. Al-Khalidi Al-Maliki
Abstract—WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is a new technology designed for sharing all kinds of data over long distances using wireless communication. It can be used to cover an area of a few square kilometres, such as a college campus or a small town. Its reach is greater than the more familiar “Wi-Fi” networks often employed in offices, homes or coffee shops. Sharing resources such as digital books and articles,E-learning materials, and E-services is necessary for the entire user in frequent and uninterrupted access.This study uses a sample approach to enhance the sharing of digital library resources including medical data, books, and other administrative data resources between universities and other entities. It is proposed that WiMAX technology should be implemented for sharing digital library resources among the various colleges within King Khalid University (KKU), Saudi Arabia. Successful implementation of this model will justify extending it to other universities.

Index Terms—WiMAX, digital library, base station, mobile station, backhaul.
