WiMAX To Be Worth $4bn By 2010

Posted: 31st Oct, 2005 By: MarkJ
The analyst firm Maravedis has reported that WiMAX broadband wireless technology is predicted to be worth up to $1bn come 2007 and $4bn by 2010. That’s quite impressive for a technology that’s still not technically complete:

At the WiMAX World conference, hold in the US last week, Motorola and research group Trendsmedia surveyed attendees to discover that 45 per cent of respondents believe the ability to achieve seamless mobility through interoperability of various devices and networks will be the tipping point for the success of the technology.

However, 57 per cent of respondents are also prepared to wait for the 802.16e standard, which includes full mobility, instead of deploying 802.16d or proprietary solutions which only support fixed wireless or nomadic services.

It's amazing to see any wireless technology getting such attention, especially when practical large-scale deployments of WiMAX have barely even begun. More @ VNUNet.
