WiMAX Interoperability

Motorola’s Fred Wright spoke at a keynote breakfast this morning to kick off today’s WiMAX World activities. One of his major points of emphasis was interoperability of WiMAX devices. As much as Motorola is excited about its own WiMAX products, Fred noted how critical it is to have a whole ecosystem of devices available to attract consumers. Last night at the Smart Home event, there were several third-party products operating off of the installed Motorola WiMAX access point – a photo frame, a cordless phone, the OQO handheld. And right now Ron Resnick, president of the WiMAX Forum, is talking about opportunities for new types of devices, like a WiMAX USB dongle that also works as an MP3 player. According to Ron, there are more than 480 WiMAX devices currently under development by more than 80 vendors. Interoperability is critical.
