Wireless Broadband

Will WiMAX Replace 3G and Fixed Broadband?

Click here for a PDF version of this brochure.

Interest in Wireless Broadband has revived based on new IEEE 802.16 standards and WiMAX interoperability certification along with strong endorsements by Intel and Proxim. The business case for WiMAX as a Wireless Broadband system is compelling and will produce the result that WiMAX will supplement and often replace 3G, DSL, and other wireline technologies to provide broadband services.

This report examines Wireless Broadband technologies including WiMAX, WCDMA, and TD-CDMA. It defines the global regulatory environment and describes what the service providers are doing today. The report shows that business case for WiMAX, WCDMA, and TD-CDMA is quite robust and compares favorably to the business case for DSL in both urban and rural environments. The report also provides a fine grained forecast for the global market as well as eight individual markets:

North America Western

Europe

Russian Federation

High Income Asia-Pacific

Latin America & Caribbean

Eastern Europe

Middle East and Africa

Low Income Asia-Pacific

The report also includes discussion of the activities of 14 service providers plus profiles of 27 manufactures and consulting companies participating in this market.. It also includes recommendations on how to succeed in this market for service providers, manufacturers, regulators, and investors.
