Qualcomm apparently is really out on the attack against WiMax: It’s funny though, because I wouldn’t think such a defensive mode would be necessary unless Qualcomm saw WiMax as a real potential competitor. If WiMax really is smoke and mirrors, why would Qualcomm be making such efforts to bash it?
The future widespread success of WiMax is uncertain, yet it’s hard to totally dismiss its potential. Yes, WiMax does have promise in the backhaul market, but it also holds promise for delivering access to the underserved or even to compete with DSL in some markets. There is definitely room to criticize the standardization process for WiMax and the technology has its shortcomings, but it clearly has potential.
