WiMAX 802.16-2004 to 802.16e - Which Technology Will Fare Best in the Future?

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( ) has announced the addition of Fixed or mobile WiMAX? Forecasts and assessment for the transition from 802.16-2004 to 802.16e WiMAX to their offering.

The report "Fixed or mobile WiMAX? Forecasts and assessment for the transition from 802.16-2004 to 802.16e WiMAX" presents an in-depth analysis of the market dynamics for the two versions of WiMAX, and for both fixed and mobile services.

The presence of two, mutually incompatible, versions of WiMAX creates a challenge for everyone in the industry, namely, picking the version that will fare best in the long run. 802.16-2004 WiMAX only supports fixed access, but products are already available. 802.16e WiMAX supports mobile and fixed access but products are still at least a year away. Vendors need to understand what demand there is for these two technologies in order to refine their product roadmaps. Service providers want to understand which technology best meets their requirements and will enjoy long-term support from vendors.
