Sprint CTO champions WiMAX

16 марта 2007
Sprint CTO and President 4G Mobile Broadband Barry West says that many operators are viewing WiMAX as the creation of another cellular network. HSPA and 1xEV-DO will offer a "reasonable experience" but WiMAX offers a less-expensive alternative and will allow the operator to create what he believes will be a whole new market. West envisions an "all-you-can-eat" broadband access alternative that follows the Internet model, and not the cellular model.

And he believes that the WiMAX ecosystem is rapidly coming together. West notes that the company now has three top manufacturers-Motorola, Samsung and Nokia-committed to devices and infrastructure gear. Plus he believes that the low-cost of the WiMAX chip set-which Nokia said would drop to about 7 Euros per chip by 2008-will allow carriers to sell WiMAX devices to subscribers without a subsidy.
