While some of this story is a bit of a roundup of recent announcements, there’s at least one quite succinct quote in it: Kevin Suitor, vice president at Redline Communications says this: “You can only sell a vision for so much time.” This is the problem facing vendors as they approach the market. They must do their best to sell the vision of WiMax, because they can’t actually sell certified WiMax equipment yet.
Apparently Redline has taken to touting its products as 802.16 compliant. That may be true of a slew of products on the market right now, but 802.16 compliance is a very different thing than WiMax certified. It sounds to me like another marketing angle that the vendors may take to show their allegiance to WiMax before they can actually sell certified gear.
