Network-equipment makers eye mobile WiMAX products in 2007

A number of Taiwan-based network-equipment makers, including Gemtek Technology, Accton Technology and Zyxel Communications, are expected to begin commercial shipments, albeit in small volumes, of mobile WiMAX products in the first quarter of 2007, although many market sources indicated that a real takeoff of WiMAX applications isn't likely to come until 2008, according to market sources.

Demand for 802.16e-compatible mobile WiMAX is picking up now as more telecom service providers are building their mobile WiWAX infrastructure, bypassing the fixed-type WiMAX systems, the sources noted.
