The State of the WiMAX
Forecasters say Asia Pacific will be the initial hotbed of activity for WiMAX, but Canada also is seeing its share of pioneers for the technology. However, WiMAX’s success in North America, where other broadband access options already are widespread, largely will hinge on the creation of a new category of service called personal broadband.
U.S. operators are chomping at the bit to deploy mobile WiMAX services, but they are encountering holdups as they wait for the government to release more spectrum for auction.
Come On, Get Appy
Whether it’s the triple play, mobile VoIP, or bandwidth-hungry mobile television or fixed-mobile convergence services, applications are becoming central to service provider models going forward. The resulting increased bandwidth and QoS demands, along with the problem of last-mile access bottlenecking, now are making for a good opportunity for WiMAX.
Hitting the Road
The first mobile WiMAX products are expected to come to market in 2007. The momentum behind the 802.16e standard has shifted into high gear, with 21 infrastructure and device vendors participating in a fall plugfest.
