WiMAX World Conference & Exposition is the nation’s first wireless broadband business solutions event focused on covering the commercialization the IEEE 802.16 standard known as WiMAX. Lead by the WiMAX ForumTM and its over 160 member companies, 802.16 holds the promise of transforming how wireless broadband internet access is made available throughout the world – first, as pre-standard equipment increasingly is compliant with the IEEE 802.16 standard, and second, as equipment becomes WiMAX CertifiedTM, or interoperable, driving costs down and deployments up.
According to Eliot Weinman, President of Trendsmedia and conference co-chairman, “Trendsmedia has worked closely with the WiMAX ForumTM, its member companies, and the industry's leading thought leaders for over 10 months to develop this program. WiMAX has gained considerable momentum recently with the signficant growth in membership of the WiMAX ForumTM, as well as with announced pre-WiMAX deployments throughout the world. Although there has been a tremendous amount of hype concerning WiMAX, the potential of WiMAX is clear. By building equipment, chipsets and wireless broadband components based on open certifiable standards, WiMAX has an opportunity to bring low cost wireless broadband internet access to many regions of the globe at significantly reduced costs. Yet WiMAX still has key challenges ahead. WiMAX World Conference & Exposition covers the major business and technology aspects of WiMAX usage and deployment, and presents an in-depth and balanced view for companies wishing to learn how they can deploy WiMAX solutions to enhance their services and grow their businesses.
