Pipex, a spectrum holder in the UK, is set to trial gear from Airspan: The trial should last six months and will test applications including voice over IP. I thought we were a little beyond the twisting of words but apparently not—the companies in their press release call this the “first 802.16-2004 compliant WiMax trial in the UK.” That’s a bit of a moot point seeing as there is no body that aims to assure the industry that equipment is 802.16-2004 compliant. Instead, statements like that only confuse readers into thinking that perhaps this is the first true WiMax compliant trial, but in fact that’s not true either seeing as certification hasn’t even started.
