Many times when a new technology emerges a rather heated debate arises. Not too long ago in the wireless broadband industry, the camps representing WiMAX and LTE did not miss the opportunity to advocate for their respective views and sharing potential benefits of their standpoints against the other. Over time, when arguments and feelings calm down a bit, a more sensible discussion can emerge and I think we’ve entered this now.

Making the “right” technology choices is always high on…

WiMAX in Emerging Markets

Developing markets have their own unique needs when it comes to delivering broadband connectivity. Unlike markets where telecommunications may have been progressing at a quick pace for some time, developing areas frequently have limited infrastructure, limited options for financial transactions between people and enterprises, fewer resources dedicated to deployment and maintenance, and possibly location-specific challenges with regard to terrain. 

Today, developing markets are seen in…

Carrier-Grade Service using Wi-Fi Over WiMAX

At the end of my previous post, I touched on the opportunity for existing WiMAX operators to take a role in the current quest to provide high-capacity network services for 3G and Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

Consider this: a residential suburb close to a large metropolitan area with limited broadband options today. This is typically one of the locations where the cellular networks providing 3G services are running into capacity congestions, particularly…

The Future of WiMAX

Close to six years have passed since Aptilo Networks decided to put a serious effort into the WiMAX market as a provider of back-office support systems. Back in those days, WiMAX was very much touted in media and by analysts as the technology to challenge the cellular industry dominance/hegemony. With hindsight, most of us in the business realized that this was never the real beauty and purpose of this new technology but of course happily tagged along for various reasons.

Sprint can support both LTE and Mobile WiMAX in same geographical area; uncertain about future plans(LTE vs WiMAX 2.0)

At his Oct 27 Sprint Developers Conference keynote, CEO Dan Hesse was asked about Sprint's plans for LTE. He answered that Sprint and Clearwire collectively have enough spectrum to support both from the same cell tower. In other words, the existing or soon to be "4G" (Mobile WiMAX) customers would not be abandoned.

Mr.Hesse said the company had not decided whether to deploy any version of LTE or IEEE 802.16m - WiMAX 2.0. 4G Director Todd Rowley told…
