Competing WiMAX Standards & Growth

Posted: 24th May, 2006 By: MarkJ
Juniper Research predicts that the number of Fixed broadband wireless WiMAX subscribers will grow from 1.3m in 2006 to 8.5m in 2011. However, the advent of certified Mobile WiMAX equipment in 2007 will lead to many subscribers adopting Mobile WiMAX instead of Fixed WiMAX:

Fixed WiMAX is expected to primarily serve as a last mile connection for fixed wireless broadband access to homes and businesses. There are also plans for it to be used as a backhaul solution for cellular, WiFi mesh and WiFi hotspot networks.

The initial growth for Fixed WiMAX is expected to occur largely in developed regions due to the high number of pre-Fixed WiMAX installations. But in due course countries/regions in the ‘developing world’ like China, India and South America, will see a larger growth due to low broadband penetration levels. The report features country level forecasts with a breakdown between developing and developed regions.

According to the author of the report, Aditya Kaul, “The current activity and interest levels in the market suggest that the next 2-3 years will see a healthy adoption of Fixed WiMAX. On the other hand, Mobile WiMAX seems to be on track for an early release in 2007, which brings with it a superior standard, a fixed wireless option and an immense value add in mobility, making them complimentary as well as competitive solutions”


Several wireless ISP’s in the UK are already adopting Fixed WiMAX to deliver broadband Internet access services, although the impact of Mobile WiMAX could still be uncertain, with mobile phone operators unwilling to sideline 3G technology so soon.
