TAIPEI -– More than 3,000 visitors and 50 WiMAX Forum® member companies converged to participate in the WiMAX Forum Taipei Showcase and WiMAX Forum conference this week to experience the demonstration of live Mobile WiMAX™ products and services. During a press conference to kick off the two day exposition, the WiMAX Forum announced the opening of the industry’s first WiMAX Forum-endorsed application lab and the results of its fourth public, Mobile WiMAX PlugFest.

The M-Taiwan WiMAX Application Lab located in Hsinchu, is designed to be an open environment where innovators from around the globe can come to develop and test new WiMAX applications covering categories such as Voice over Internet Protocol and entertainment. The lab will open its doors to equipment and application developers beginning this week, offering a chance to test their products and services for performance on a live WiMAX system and conduct and measure consumer acceptance before bringing them to market.

“This new application lab, supported by local industry and Taiwan administration, is a stellar example of the global readiness by region for the innovations that anytime, anywhere broadband Internet access of WiMAX technology will spawn," said Ron Resnick, president of the WiMAX Forum, at the press conference here today. "As our members come together this week in Taipei to showcase products and announce plans to deliver Mobile WiMAX services in 2008, we are reminded that the WiMAX industry is addressing a new standard in a way no other industry or association has in the past. We are approaching WiMAX technology much the same way that the innovators of the Internet built the World Wide Web, offering a truly open infrastructure where no single operator or service provider dominates the technology."
