This study investigates the feasibility of deploying combined WiFi and WiMAX technologies in the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ghana (MOFA). We outline the technical aspects of WiFi and WiMAX, discuss the network planning issues to implement these technologies, study their network infrastructure, and their different components as well as explore their complementary nature, and how they are leveraged by service providers to offer wireless broadband internet connectivity and services at affordable prices. MOFA has already deployed WiFi in some of its buildings. WiMAX allows broadband connectivity beyond individual buildings to provide blanket coverage of an entire area. The integration of WiMAX and WiFi onto a common device platform at MOFA would enable users to connect to either in-building WiFi or wide WiMAX networks, allowing them to stay connected as they move. Using this dual-mode model, network administrators can also reduce the number of WiFi access points needed to attain full premise coverage, thereby reducing costs.
