Cisco Joins WiMax Forum
"IEEE 802.16 (WiMax) offers a very interesting value proposition to customers, particularly in the area of delivering wireless broadband to entire sections of metropolitan areas," notes a company statement.
"As a member of the WiMax Forum (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), Cisco will continue to monitor the progress of IEEE 802.16 and explore its potential to complement Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies in the fixed, nomadic/portable and mobile markets."
Earlier this year analysts argued it was only a matter of time before Cisco jumped on board the WiMax bandwagon (see Cisco Late to WiMax Party).
We’ll have more comment to follow.
