The WiMax Forum chose Cetecom Spain as the standardization test lab: The forum said the certification program will start in July. After recent news that the process is about six months delayed, the forum has laid out its vision for the future timeline. The forum expects operator lab trials to start in the third quarter 2005 with commercial trials in the fourth. Ron Resnick, president of the WiMax Forum, is “optimistic,” that networks will be commercially deployed in the first quarter 2006. Ironically, hearing the term “optimistic” from the head of the forum actually doesn’t sound very encouraging.
However, it’s nice to have this milestone—the designation of the test lab—pass. If the lab does actually start the certification process in July, the schedule may start moving along.
The press release doesn’t seem to be available online anywhere. We’ll include a link as soon as we find it online.
