The impending use of intelligent antennas for WiFi, cellular and broadband wireless platforms suggest the strong but small intelligent antenna industry is ready to take off, according to a new study.
IA developments within the WiMAX segment continue briskly behind the scenes and IA-enabled base stations are positioned to become a fixture within WiMAX infrastructure for capacity and coverage reasons. However, IA is not a guarantee for success of WiMAX, according to the study
The report provides global forecasts for annual intelligent antenna deployments, unit shipments, and revenues within the mobile wireless, 802.20, 802,16, WiFi, and point-to-point radio segments through the end of the decade. It analyzes previous missteps and successes of the technology and the impact of the technology in the future
The study evaluates the technolog’ s impact upon existing mobile markets, the emerging WiMAX Standard, WiFi, point-to-point radio, and the developing 802.20 Standard.
