Attend visiongain’s Telecommunication conference, “WiMAX 2005 – capabilities, costs, time scales, standards and alternative solutions”. This two-day conference will provide a platform for over 20 representatives from the WiMAX Forum and the mobile industry to discuss the latest developments of WiMAX before the standards are confirmed.

PR9.NET February 11, 2005 - London, UK - The WiMAX 2005 conference will take place on May 11th & 12th at the Marriott Kensington Hotel, London. It will cover the significance and potential impact of WiMAX as well as the obstacles. The technical, industry and regulatory challenges will be discussed before the technology can become a true broadband contender. WiMAX is one of the most hyped technologies in history, but until both products and models emerge, it is unclear how justified the hype is. Therefore the competing and alternative technologies will also be presented at the event, such as Flarion’s FLASH-OFDM® mobile broadband system; IP Wireless’ UMTS TDD technology and Texas Instrument’s discussion on whether wired broadband is complementary to WiMAX.

Over the two days you will be able to engage in the debate on how to integrate WiMAX and alternative broadband services into your company’s strategy, by adopting innovative marketing solutions and revenue enhancing models. You will have the chance to hear how BT and aLÓ are utilising WiMAX to extend their broadband offerings in the UK and Spain respectively. Swisscom will discuss a mobile operator’s view on WiMAX and how it will affect their investments in 3G and Public W-LAN. Find out how Intel is involved with mobile data and a longer-term co-existence with 3G. Other key speakers will present case studies on their latest WiMAX developments, including Nortel Networks; Fujitsu Microelectronics America; Alvarion; Navini Networks and Cisco Systems.
