WiMAX is holding its own, despite the economic downturn, although it will come under increasing pressure to prove itself over the next couple of years with the rise of HSPA and LTE.
Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo said Monday that it has successfully field tested LTE technology, claiming wireless transmissions in the range of 120Mbps in an urban environment.
WiMAX supporters can claim with some justification that telecom regulators, in some of the world’s key markets, are dampening the technology’s growth prospects in the near term through overlong periods of ‘consultation’. India is an obvious example. Ongoing disputes between different government departments, blurred divisions of responsibility between the regulator (TRAI) and the Department of [...]
The Mobile World Congress was noticeably quieter this year but nonetheless produced a number of announcements that should increase the already considerable momentum behind mobile broadband. What was significant, and encouraging, was a theme of companies forming partnerships. Although commercial gain is obviously the main impetus behind these partnerships, they should also have the desired [...]
Behind the touchscreen and ‘app store’ fanfare at the MWC event in Barcelona last week, WiMAX was taking quiet but significant steps towards having what the WiMAX Forum believes will be 800 million people within reach of WiMAX networks by 2010.
Verizon CTO, Dick Lynch, has named Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent as the company’s LTE base station suppliers. Speaking at the MWC event in Barcelona, Lynch added that further LTE trials will take place this summer using the 700MHz frequency band with commercial deployment slated for next year in ’20 to 30 markets in the US’. Verizon [...]
Despite all the marketing noise that is sure to be generated by LTE supporters during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this week, Agilent – a test & measurement specialist – believes there is still some way to go before LTE is widely commercially available and delivering the much-touted speeds of 100Mbps and above.

The Pirate Bay, one of the world’s leading peer to peer sites and tormentor in chief of the music and movie industries, has released statistics breaking down the location of its users by country.
As new rounds of IPR negotiations over OFDM/OFDMA technologies loom, Qualcomm is out to persuade critics that its approach to IPR is vastly transparent, not to mention fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory. But will that forestall future licensing disagreements?
