A WiMax Update

Last week, the WiMax Forum announced the formation of a Regulatory Working Group, tasked with improving availability of WiMax spectrum worldwide. "The availability of spectrum is mission critical for enabling mass-market deployments," says Intel's Margaret LaBrecque, the working group's chairperson.

Michael Cai, senior analyst at the market research firm Parks Associates, says the group's efforts will be crucial for global deployment of WiMax technology.

"They need to try to align spectrum policy around the world, because right now, different countries have different regulations and different spectrum bands for broadband wireless or cellular networks," Cai says. "It's a total mess."
