The IEEE standards group yesterday announced final approval of the 802.16e standard, commonly known as Mobile WiMax. Mobile WiMax trials and certification testing are expected to start in the first quarter of 2006, organized by the WiMax Forum. Products will likely follow late 2006 and services by early 2007. The standard builds on the 802.16 standards for fixed WiMax, adding support for handoffs between base stations, as well as multiple improvements for mobile device battery life and security.
