Q

Where do you think WiMAX technology will be used?

As major service providers tap Long-Term Evolution for 3G network upgrades, a question arises: What's next for WiMAX technology? Expert Ivan Pepelnjak looks at the future of WiMAX.

Where do you think WiMAX technology will be used?

WiMAX technology offers a perfect next-generation wireless solution. Unfortunately, it requires a completely new

infrastructure, so it is best for greenfield deployment. It is dubious that major service providers will decide to deploy it instead of upgrading their existing 3G networks to LTE. You can expect to see WiMAX technology in greenfield networks trying to sell high-speed connectivity (for example, high-speed Internet access in rural networks).
