Archived report. This report was archived in 2009 and has not been updated since. WiMAX and LTE have emerged over the last couple of years as the most likely candidates for Next Generation Mobile Networks. In 2009 LTE has gained strong support from many of the large of operators, with some conducting trials. Nokia also plans to develop a device for LTE networks, rather than continue its support of WiMAX. WiMAX is beginning to be seen more and more as a niche technology suitable for only some markets. This report provides high level analyses of the wireless broadband sector including statistics and forecasts. More detailed information on WiMAX, LTE and other technologies are also available from separate reports.

Purchase with Confidence

Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister.

Dominic Schipano, CITT
