ITU approves WiMax

U.N. Agency Gives Boost to WiMax – New York Times

The United Nations telecommunications agency in Geneva gave the upstart technology called WiMax a vote of approval, providing a sizable victory for Intel and something of a defeat for competing technologies from Qualcomm and Ericsson.

The International Telecommunication Union’s radio assembly agreed late Thursday to include WiMax, a wireless technology that allows Internet and other data connections across much broader areas than Wi-Fi, as part of what is called the third-generation family of mobile standards.

That endorsement opens the way for many of the union’s member countries to devote a part of the public radio spectrum to WiMax, and receivers for it could be built into laptop computers, phones, music players and other portable devices.

    Cisco, which was backing a different standard, has come around very quickly by buying Navini, which has a full WiMax portfolio: http://investor.cisco.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=81192&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1066029&highlight=
