A Tale of Two Very Different Spectrum Auctions – Bangladesh and Taiwan

Dianne Northfield, VP Research, Tolaga Research www.tolaga.com

A review of recent spectrum auctions in Bangladesh and Taiwan attests to significant differences in outcomes due to country specific market conditions and auction provisions. There was limited competition in Bangladesh’s single band 3G spectrum auction – with 4 bidders vying for 4 licenses. Prices paid for spectrum were only…

Is anyone looking for Axxcelera WiMAX 3.65GHz equipment?

Is anyone looking for Axxcelera WiMAX 3.65GHz equipment?

I have access to 12 ExcelMAX Base Station and AP Antennas and over 300 WiMAX CPE all in 100% working condition.

This is a "feeler" and not a hard sell. This network is currently up and fully operational. It will be getting a complete change out to an LTE RAN so the 300+ business' currently on Axxcelera will be migrated over a 30-day period.

Talk to me Goose!

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.

Georgians Bridge the Broadband Gap

Earlier this week, I posted a few thoughts on how the broadband gap isn’t isolated to rural areas of the U.S., but affects urban areas too. I took that as an opportunity to encourage local governments and community groups to band together to tackle the issue themselves, in conjunction with the federal government’s broadband stimulus plan.

The Death of Print and Mea Culpa

I heard today that RCR (I have never known what that stood for!) closed it's doors. I knew many of the people there because over my years of working in the wireless industry, I have met and briefed most of them many times. And now, like newspaper dailies, they have fallen victim to the recession and the Internet.

The recession I have no responsibility for. I did not buy a house I couldn't afford, wallow in credit card debt, or package unsustainable loans for others. Fortunately my… Continue

If they decide to start making there bullet in the 900MHz or 3.65 GHz ouch for the other equipment makers. For it would problebly only cost hundreds instead of thousands of dollars. There 2.4 5.8 hp bullets are… Continue
