Unstrung Eyes WiMax

Unstrung's latest Who Makes What report is a survey of the equipment makers and service providers involved in the world of WiMax, currently one of the hottest topics in wireless. WiMax -- in case you've been out of it for the last year and a half -- is a metropolitan area, high-speed, wireless networking technology, derived from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. (IEEE)'s 802.16 specification. Fixed wireless WiMax products that are deemed compliant by the WiMAX Forum are due out before the end of the year. Mobile infrastructure will follow in 2007.

The report looks at the chip vendors that are making suitable silicon and equipment vendors that are developing infrastructure, and it lists the carriers, large and small, that are trialing and launching WiMax-esque services around the world.

Click to view the report: Who Makes What: WiMax Equipment & Services.

So why make a survey of equipment and services available now?

Simply because many vendors haven't waited for the WiMAX Forum seal of approval but have come out with what they are calling "pre-WiMax" products, which many carriers are using -- or planning to use -- to get a first taste of broadband wireless.

As with other Who Makes What reports, we invite you to point out any WiMax infrastructure vendors or services that we have missed. Email [email protected] or post on the message board any names that you feel should be in the report.
