Wi-Fi vs. Wi-MAX: Vendor and Service Provider Opportunities

Contents

This iDRD (Insight-based Data-rich Deliverable) falls within both the Business Wireless and Business Networks subscriptions.  This report takes a detailed look at the key differences, opportunities, and evolving technologies for both Wi-Fi and WiMAX.  Coverage includes the basics of Wi-Fi, the basics of WiMAX, comparison of the two technologies, latest industry announcements, and vendor opportunities.  Wi-Fi can be defined as a brand originally licensed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to describe the underlying technology of wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE 802.11 specifications. WiMAX is a certification defined as the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access by the WiMAX Forum, formed in April 2001 to promote conformance and interoperability of the IEEE 802.16 standard, officially known as WirelessMAN. The Forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL".  The Expert Guide for this iDRD is Stephanie Atkinson.
Sources: Compass Intelligence’s segment and market forecasts, which include business expenditures, market demographics, and usage and adoption statistics are built using multiple sources, including proprietary Compass Intelligence research. These sources include, but are not limited to, secondary research, government data and statistics (e.g. Department of Commerce, Federal Communication Commission, Bureau of Labor Statistics and US Census Bureau), primary research, vendor-based research and in-depth interviews with key decision-makers, where relevant. Compass Intelligence selects data sources to provide greatest degree of perspective on each market or segment, in addition to the highest level of data accuracy, stability, and consistency over time.
