Today Samsung announced that it plans to adopt Mobile WiMax Release 2, which is based on IEEE 802.16m. Release 2 can provide up to four times that data speeds when compared to Release 1 (802.16e). It adds Multi-User MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology, which helps to improve the efficiency of the antennas. Mobile WiMax Release 2 equipment will be backward compatible with Release 1, and customers' current Release 1 devices should work with Release 2. Samsung said it plans to trial Release 2 in the U.S. market via Clearwire by late 2010.
