EXCERPTS from the WiMAX Business & Technology Strategies supplement

WiMAX Trends: State of the Industry

After two years of expectation, hard work and a degree of hype, WiMAX is poised to be tested in the real world. Equipment conforming to the initial, fixed version of the standard, 802.16-2004, is in the first phase of certification testing and the much anticipated mobile 802.16e specification is close to finalization. There are many uncertainties, but one thing is sure – this will be a year of tough competition, major progress and massive change.

MOBILE BROADBAND: THE WIMAX OPPORTUNITY

Even with all of the consciousness-raising and other marketing around the advent of WiMAX, there is still significant confusion as to exactly where it fits in the spectrum (so to speak) of available broadband technologies and the services based on them. It’s very clear that demand for broadband, and particularly mobile (and therefore wireless) broadband, will continue to grow at perhaps dramatic rates over the next few years, and that time-bounded services on broadband, particularly voice, are reshaping the entire world of telecommunications and networking.

IEEE 802.16 STANDARDS UPDATE

Almost a year has gone by since the last WiMAX World Conference & Expo in 2004. During this interval, a great deal has taken place within the IEEE 802.16 standards effort and the WiMAX Forum.  Back at the conference, 802.16REVd was just being completed and approved at the IEEE (to be published as IEEE 802.16-2004 on October 1 2004) and the 802.16 Task Group e (TGe), focused on the upcoming mobile standard, was just gaining traction.  To some, IEEE 802.16-2004 now seems like ancient history and work on the TGe amendment for support of mobile devices has already come a long way. This article will attempt to provide a brief description of the progress made in 802.16e over the past year, how this relates to the related European effort, ETSI HiperMAN, and how the WiMAX Forum fits in.
