WiMax is one of the hottest wireless technologies around today. Starting later this year, WiMax systems are expected to deliver broadband access services to residential and enterprise customers. In the future, notebook PC and mobile users could also be supported.

This Who Makes What report seeks to identify the leading players in WiMax components, software, and network equipment. It will also highlight major service-provider WiMax trials and deployments taking place around the world. The report is intended to be updated continually as the market matures and network rollouts accelerate.

For some background on WiMax, including what it is, how it works, and why it is interesting, see our WiMax Guide.

Before networks can be deployed and advertised as 100 percent WiMax-compatible, vendors will have to submit equipment for conformance and interoperability testing against specific “Profiles” developed by the WiMAX Forum. This testing program will generate confidence in the underlying standards behind WiMax and is expected to be crucial to market adoption of the technology. For more on this see: WiMax Lab Opens Its Doors, WiMax: A Spec Divided, and WiMax Waits on Testing.

This report breaks the WiMax market down into three categories: components, systems, and services. Here’s a hyperlinked summary:
