Fueled both by consumer demand for entertainment and communication as well as governmental regulatory and economic incentives, companies at all levels of the broadband services and infrastructure value chain are developing new technologies and enabling new services that will continue to push the US broadband market forward over the next 4-6 years. Recent economic uncertainty will affect the consumer market but will not greatly influence the adoption of WiMAX and other emerging wireless technologies in communications sectors. One exception to this is the emergence of WiMAX services targeted at the mobile professional, empowering the connected laptop ‘on the go’. This is an application which will likely be negatively impacted by reduced corporate spending due to expense controls that will negatively impact the roll-out and applications targeting the mobile professional.

The Wireless Broadband Technology Trends Fall 2008 Report includes a thorough evaluation of emerging technologies including WiMAX, both fixed and mobile, WiBRO, HSPA, BPL(broadband over Powerline), and advanced optical fiber. According to the report, Mobile WiMAX or IEE 802.16e, has evolved to the point of realistic market acceptance. Additional factors are creating a condition of strong positive growth for the market for Mobile WiMAX over the next 18 months.

The development of wired broadband network infrastructures in fact enables the deployment of wireless technologies. As an example, the development of fiber optic infrastructure offers a market driver for the development of WiMAX in developed countries.

Contrary to conventional wisdom, there is substantial competition to WiMAX. Traditional, or wired, broadband technologies offer direct competition to fixed WiMAX and are being fueled by governmental encouragement on a global scale. The deployment of IPv6 on a global scale will mark a new era for humanity, at least those connected to technology.

In order for various countries to participate in the increased security afforded as a byproduct of IPv6, the internet infrastructure technologies must be in place. These are marketed as broadband services to the consumer and the development of triple- and quadruple-play offerings which combine television broadcast, interactive content delivery, internet services, and voice communications capabilities. In this respect wired technologies such as optical fiber are in fact in competition with mobile WiMAX, in spite of the drastic difference in features each technology enables.
