Mobile WiMax Standard Approved
Dec 8, 2005, 2:00 PM by (staff)
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.

4G time. .. My thoughts.
wimax is pretty interesting technology to me, but no one has any idea how it will perform in a true environment instead of in the labs. i still think that many carriers will start to test many other technologies, but the problem is, i dont think they have enough spectrum to launch it in the cities to get an roic on the investment. cingular obviously is doing umts/hsda, while verizon is doing ev-do rev O and REV A. the only other company that has plenty of spectrum to deploy any 4g technology is sprint/nextel eventhough they already are going from DO rev o to rev a.
i think it comes down to flarion, td-cdma, and wimax. if wimax is true on what the speeds and the signal lengths can travel then it will be a very huge...
That four year deadline strongly suggests that they'll do UMT...
WiMAX will Die a Painful Death
In the meantime, the world will not stand still. You'll have release 6 or even 7 from UMTS by then which will probably include an OFDMA downlink at least and an all IP architecture. They will learn from wimax implementation errors.
Qualcomm seeks to standardize FLASH-OFDM which already does everything wimax...
I can see in now.....
