The Register reports that 802.16e was the focus at the WiMax Summit in Paris: The mobile version of WiMax seems to be getting a lot of attention these days. That’s ironic, given that mobility was an afterthought to the original intent to develop the WiMax standard. However, it appears that now 802.16d developers are working on adding extra capabilities to their initial products in an effort to drive interest in them prior to the introduction of 802.16e. Proprietary extensions always can threaten the benefits of having a standard because they usually don’t allow for interoperability. WiMax vendors will have to be careful about that or risk losing momentum. The story also reports that many of the chip vendors are working to ensure that their current chips will be software upgradeable to 802.16e.
