New website includes WiMAX section and maps of WiFi and WiMAX deployments worldwide.

MuniWireless (http://www.muniwireless.com) (the leading source of news and analysis about municipal wireless broadband networks) has launched its new web site that covers citywide deployments of WiFi networks worldwide. MuniWireless has added a new WiMAX section (http://www.muniwireless.com/wimax) and acquired the domain name, http://www.muniwimax.com to address the growing interest in this technology for infrastructure deployment in major cities.

Paul Kapustka, founder of Sidecut Reports, has joined MuniWireless as the editor of the new WiMax section. Esme Vos, founder of MuniWireless, commented: "Paul has been covering broadband deployments and telecom policy issues for many years, and brings his technical expertise and carrier relationships to our new WiMax section." Kapustka will continue to run Sidecut Reports, which offers long-form analysis and research at http://www.sidecutreports.com.

The success of mobile devices that are WiFi enabled such as the iPhone and the Gphone will require additional infrastructure to meet demand. Esme added: "It is clear that additional broadband infrastructure is needed to address the growing demand for fast and low-cost connections. The new Obama administration has indicated that broadband deployments will become a priority, and I expect to see an increase in spending in wireless broadband infrastructure in 2009 in the U.S. and worldwide".
