Robust growth of Mobile WiMAX ahead, while significant competition still seen between WiMAX, LTE and HSPA in mobile broadband market says new WTRS Telecom Application Report 2008.

A new market study, WTRS Telecom Application Report 2008, analyzes and forecasts the overall Telecom client-side RF chipset market. It is written primarily for component-level companies who are in the process of evaluating the Telecom market, the "Wireless Broadband" sector, and the participation of WiMAX (802.16a, 802.16d-2004, and 802.16e). This report is designed to support development of business and product planning activities and includes an assessment of the market, regulatory, and governmental drivers on a global scale. The report analyzes potential market opportunities for component OEMs, describes initial versus long-range drivers in the market, and analyzes partnership opportunities and existing alliances.

"Shipments of IEEE 802.16.e chipsets will undergo strong growth over the next five years. However, WiMAX will also see strong competition from LTE and HSPA by 2011," says Kirsten West, principal analyst of WTRS. "Established cellular broadband technologies in this space are growing rapidly and it will be challenging for IEEE 802.16.e technology to displace much of the existing technology infrastructure. With a 198% Compound Annual Growth rate WTRS foresees a substantial advantage for WiMAX in the developing world as it provides an ideal solution for Greenfield deployments of basic voice and data services."
