802.16 and 802.20 market to outpace $1 bln by 2007

The emergence of new standards
will result in a dynamic rate of growth for Fixed Wireless Broadband
(FWB), reports In-Stat/MDR. Traditionally, a
lack of standards has hampered the deployment of FWB systems, as the
proprietary nature of FWB technology kept the cost high, and limited
interoperability between different vendors. However, the emergence of
FWB-specific standards like 802.16 and 802.20 will help to grow FWB in
its three main applications – last mile connectivity, network backhaul,
and private networking. As a result, the market will grow from $558.7
million in 2003 to over $1.2 billion by the end of 2007.
