WiMax: Show & Tell
It's official: Despite concerns about delays, equipment availability, and mobile services, WiMax is the hottest wireless topic on wheels at the moment.
If you needed proof, you could have rubbed shoulders -- and maybe other body parts, too, given how crowded it was -- with the 200-plus attendees at Light Reading Live's first ever show about the metropolitan area standard, called WiMax: Why Now?.

The all-day show was held last Thursday at the Union Square W Hotel in Manhattan. Heavy Reading analyst Rick Thompson hosted the event, which included demonstrations and speakers from Navini Networks Inc., SR Telecom Inc. (Toronto: SRX), and Stratex Networks Inc.
