Information for Presenters
established itself as one of the today's key wireless technologies for
multiple applications, including fixed and mobile. The purpose of this
meeting is to examine the technical directions of the technology,
including items such as performance, evolution, deployment, voice
support, connection management and application integration.
The meeting will
address questions such as:
- What is the current state
of WiMAX technology?
- What are the capabilities
of the technology and how will they evolve?
- How can WiMAX operators
leverage spectrum assets?
- What services and devices
will WiMAX enable?
- How will connections be
managed in multi-network environments?
- How and when will voice
- How important are femto
cells for WiMAX deployment?
that meeting presenters, and many of the attendees, are world leading
technologists on the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest interest.
Moreover, the meetings allow informal networking during breaks where
attendees can exchange important information.

site, as well as to allow detailed questions for discussion.
is a technical audience (e.g., engineering and program managers),
so please make the presentations technical. Emphasis should be on
industry and technology at large, versus selling your product (limit of
3 slides). Consider
items such as compatibility, technical alternatives, standardization, deployment
certification and adoption.
- Generally, 40 to 60 people attend each
meeting, representing a broad spectrum of the mobile computing
industry, including operators, infrastructure vendors, device
vendors, middleware providers and application vendors.
