London, UK – April 07, 2011 — Research conducted by Technavio reveals that the global Wi-Max is expected to grow at a CAGR of 35 percent. The report, which focuses on the Americas, EMEA and APAC indicates, that the market is currently driven by the standardization of Wi-Max technology, among other factors.
“Consumer devices enabled with WiMAX for cellular technology need effective handovers between WiMAX and other available wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi and 3G. As a result, standards for handover have been defined between WiMAX and Wi-Fi under the IEEE framework (802.21 – Media Independent Handover, or MIH). This has had a positive impact on the Wi-Max equipment market,” reports Technavio analyst.
In spite of the need, spectrum allocation issues hinder the growth of this market. However, the increasing adoption of Wi-Max equipment by the education sector is expected to drive the market.
