Clearwire Lays Groundwork for WiMax Global Roaming
Today Clearwire and international WiMAX operators UQ Communications of Japan and Yota of Russia all agreed to work together on the business and technical pieces of their respective WiMax businesses so that they may support international roaming in the future. The idea would be to enable WiMax devices that can run not only in Clearwire's WiMax network in the U.S., but can also roam onto the networks run by UQ and Yota and vice versa. The agreement signed by all three companies is an initial step, and the companies will have to make sure their technology and business systems can fully support roaming. The three companies believe that by enabling international roaming, it will help increase and spread the adoption of WiMax as a networking technology.
