Broadband Wireless Revenues To Exceed $17B By 2005.

IGI Consulting's (IGIC) new report, "Wireless Access 2000," predicts that Broadband Wireless Revenues will top $17 billion by 2005, up from $5 billion in 2002, and $800 million in 2000, a CAGR of 92 percent over the five-year period. The report takes an in-depth look at the Unlicensed, MMDS, and LMDS bands and the external and internal competing technologies in the US broadband access markets such as Fiberless Optics, 3G, broadband access via satellite, xDSL, cable modem, and FTTC.

"Wireless Access 2000" investigates internal Broadband Wireless disputes such as the battle over Time Division Duplexing (TDD) and Frequency Division Duplexing, (FDD), and the debate over which modulation scheme is better suited for wireless Internet access, Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) or Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS). The report concludes that TDD is more applicable then FDD in point-to-multipoint deployments, and that FHSS system deployment will account for 74 percent of the Unlicensed band deployments by 2005.

In addition to over 30 forecasts, tables, and figures, the report details the activities of the companies involved in The Broadband Wireless marketplace. It provides over 75 profiles of wireless ISPs and equipment manufacturers, explores the standards bodies and associations, and probes new development such as Cisco's VOFDM and Wi-LAN's W-OFDM technologies.
