WiMax Still Poised For Success

Posted: 01st Feb, 2005 By: MarkJ
Despite on-going scuffles over certification for the next generation 'WiMax' (802.16) broadband wireless standard, analysts at Frost & Sullivan still believe it has great potential:

WiMax is likely to become the third most widely used high-speed internet access technology following DSL and cable modem, which are its key competitors.

WiMax could even upstage DSL, particularly in the rural areas of Asia and eastern Europe where it is extremely expensive to deploy cable or DSL.

"Customers are more confident about accepting a specifications and standards-based product and this is tilting the balance in favour of WiMax," said Frost & Sullivan research analyst Arjun Chokkappan.

Just as other research has predicted, much of the praise stems from lower costs and the fact that many ISP's and operators have been pleased with initial trials.

Here in the UK we frequently see news about WiMax technology trials, although there may still be some issues with regulation and interference to resolve. More @ VNUNet.
