Nortel, a WiMax Forum member, said it will develop mobile WiMax products with LG Electronics: Nortel has been a member of the forum for a while but hasn’t offered many details about its WiMax plans, until now. Like some other cellular vendors, Nortel seems to be skipping the fixed version of WiMax in favor of the next generation mobile version. Alcatel, which resells broadband wireless equipment from Alvarion, also recently said it is working on its own version of the mobile WiMax standard.
Nortel joins most of the other cellular equipment vendors in announcing a WiMax plan. Siemens also recently said it would develop its own WiMax solution. Lucent is reselling Alvarion gear and Motorola will upgrade Canopy to comply with WiMax. Nokia and Ericsson are members of the WiMax Forum but I don’t believe either has announced their own WiMax development initiatives or plans to resell equipment from an existing vendor.
