Businesses Have Promising Future with Emerging WiMAX Markets

Nov 26, 2009
WiMAX market in emerging countries is full of opportunities and has immense potential of eliminating disparity between rich and poor countries.
Ron Resnick, president and chairman of the WiMAX Forum, said that the WiMAX operators and producers of equipments and devices have immense commercial opportunities to tap in emerging markets, as reported by Taiwan News on October 26, 2009.
Speaking at the WiMAX Summit Taiwan 2009, Resnick said that as of the second quarter of 2009, 433 Million people across the world got access to the broadband networks, and this number is further projected to inflate and reach 800 Million subscribers by end-2010.
Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific region, Africa and Latin America enjoyed the widest broadband coverage. As per the current figures, WiMAX is likely to become a leading technology in the emerging markets. The business leader said that WiMAX technology has the potential to bridge the gap between rich and poor countries as well as urban and rural regions.
According to an industry research report “Global WiMAX Market Analysis”, released recently by RNCOS, WiMAX is a promising and sophisticated technology that holds enormous potential to provide a universal standardized broadband wireless platform. For the rapid development of their economies, most of the countries worldwide will accept WiMAX, a technology all set for deployment. Moreover, this shift to WiMAX will be a preferable option than to wait for other technologies that may not be accessible in next few years. Consequently, it is expected that the number of WiMAX users will grow at over 87% CAGR during 2010-2012.
At present, more than 145 countries have been covered with around 500 network deployments, and some of the WiMAX supporters even claim that it is the leading mobile broadband technology at present.
In addition, the WiMAX Forum is moving ahead with its new effort - WiMAX Release 2, which is based on the IEEE 802.16m standard. This endeavor will guarantee backwards compatibility with the standard’s fixed version. Also, an IEEE 802.16m-based standard has been proposed for the fourth generation of networks by the WiMAX Forum.
According to a Research Analyst at RNCOS, “Nearly all leading wireless network equipment vendors are dedicating their development resources to Long Term Evolution (LTE). In fact, LTE should have a big advantage to the extent that volume output is needed to get client side equipment prices low.”
