Realities of WiMAX to be Revealed at ISPCON Fall 2004.

GOLDEN, Colo. -- ISPCON, the leading event for wired and wireless ISPs, today released details of keynotes, educational sessions and open forum meetings focused on revealing the realities of WiMAX(TM) for attendees of the biannual Internet service provider convention. The sessions will take place during the ISPCON Fall 2004 event, which runs November 3-5 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.

The number of ISPs and WISPs providing unlicensed wireless Internet services with a varying combination of 802.11 and proprietary RF equipment has grown dramatically in recent years. WiMAX(TM), which is a broadband wireless MAN standard based on IEEE 802.16 and ETSI HiperMAN, is widely viewed as "the great wireless hope" for outdoor wireless services. The volume of news coverage, newsgroup discussion and exposure generated by the promise and potential impact of WiMAX is growing daily. The conference will thoroughly cover WiMAX in order to clarify the realities for the ISPs and WISPs in attendance. Attendees will find an abundance of opportunities to learn about, discuss and debate realities of the standard and its impact on their businesses.

Kicking off the event on November 3, 2004, will be a keynote entitled "WiMAX? Why NOT?" by Nigel Ballard, Director of Wireless at Matrix Networks. Ballard draws on over 14 years of experience in the wireless arena, from consulting through to designing and implementing wireless solutions, including early WiMAX equipment. His speech will discuss the impact this new standard will have, what it means to traditional carriers, customers, ISPs and WISPs.

Later that day, a session including Elizabeth Creekmore of CTI, Chuck Eapan of Trango Broadband Wireless and Charles Wu from CWLab will present a wake up call to attendees titled "WiMAX - Why Wait? The Operator's Dilemma in a Pre-WiMAX World."

On November 4, 2004, Analyst and Editor Steve Stroh, of Focus on Broadband Wireless Internet Access, will moderate a panel titled "WiMAX Roadmaps, Realities and Rumors." The session provides members of the WiMAX vendor community with an opportunity to discuss realities of the standard, product roadmaps and field test results with ISP and WISPs attending the conference. Panelists include: Jeff Orr, Manager, Marketing and Business Development, Proxim Corp.; Kevin Suitor, VP Business Development, Redline Communications, Inc.; Alan Menezes, VP Marketing, Aperto Networks; and Juan Santiago, Dir. Strategy and Business Dev., Motorola's Canopy Wireless Broadband Group.

Shortly after the "Roadmaps" panel, Charles Wu, Operating Manager of CWLab, will lead an open forum exchange session titled: "Maxed out on WiMAX." Members of the ISP, WISP, consulting and vendor community in attendance will gather for the open meeting to share their vision, experiences and opinions of what's to come for the standard and the wireless operators who are considering their next steps in light of current realities.

WiMAX won't be the only wireless topic covered during the six-track, three-day conference. Conferees are also provided with an intensive workshop program on Friday presented by Jack Unger, wireless veteran and President of, in addition to many other educational sessions. Subjects such as Mesh Networks, Equipment Selection, Business Plans, WISP Finance, Best Practices and Technologies, among other topics, are scheduled to complete the agenda.
