The industry is increasingly finding the FCC’s rules over the 3.65 GHz band in the United States will make the band only marginally useful: The FCC requires users of the frequency to employ a contention-based protocol. Such a capability is not built in to WiMax, which means operators can’t use WiMax gear in the band. Vendors are working on ways to easily add that capability to WiMax, but so far it doesn’t look like there is an easy way that would allow users to take advantage of the benefits of using a standard.
