INTEL放棄WIMAX

Intel dropped a bombshell earlier today, telling its customers that it will stop manufacturing the WiMax Connection 2250 broadband interface chip and the WiMax Connection 2300R radio chip. The news came via a product change notification sent out by the company, announcing an unusually quick phase-out pace. Orders have been non-cancelable and non-returnable since April 1, and final orders are taken today (June 5).

Final shipments are expected to take place on September 30, 2010.

Intel is one of the major companies globally driving the commercialization of WiMax. It has been one of the big manufacturers of WiMax hardware and it is among the top-3 investors in the Clearwire, the WiMax carrier in the U.S. The company has always been seen to have a significant role in pushing WiMax to the consumer through its knowledge in hardware. In a phone call with TG Daily, Intel said that the company will not drop its WiMax chip production, but focus on more recent WiMax chips (Echo Peak) instead.

Most recently, Intel told us that it is still optimistic about the opportunities of WiMax in the long run. Just a few weeks ago, we were told that the company is betting on a capacity vs. coverage race against 3G technologies such as HSPA and EVDO.

之前睇過一D報導
4G 只係指一個 Generation, 入面包左 WiMAX 同 LTE

WiMAX 本身係由一個 WiMAX Forum 組成, 入面包左 Intel, Siemens, Cisco 等等, 而 WiMAX 有 2.3 GHz, 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz.

而LTE, Nokia, NextWave Wireless, Alcatel-Lucent, Sony Ericsson, NEC 等等 組成, 技術上同 WiMAX 唔同, 不過當然我睇完都唔明啦, 只知 LTE 4G 可以行 1.8GHz, 2.3GHz, 2.5/6GHz,

而上年年尾左右, Siemens 正式放棄 WiMAX, 加入左 LTE, 而 4G LTE 更被 3GPP (the Third Generation Partnership Project) 組織劃為標準, 3GPP 就係好似 IEEE 咁既組織, 自3G開始, 測試同通過一D技術, 成為標準, 而世上唔止得 3GPP, 仲有 3GPP2, 當然唔排除 WiMAX 將來會通過 3GPP/3GPP2 啦...

而目前美國Verizon 已經宣佈支援LTE, 而 Nortel 既產品已經支援 4G LTE, 而加等待中國一開牌就即去馬, 而Qualcomm, Motorola 就宣佈已經支援 4G LTE, 而早個排香港拍賣既4G WiMAX係 2.3GHz, 不過無人要, 而 4G LTE 就係 2.5/2.6GHz, 有5間公司拍到

不過4G 有D唔同, 可以就咁由而加個 3G upgrade, 所以 SMV 就唔去拍個牌, 佢地好大可能會用而加 1800/1900 upgrade 上去

而 WiMAX 既前途, 睇黎都無咩, 因為之前全世界都睇 Intel 點睇, 而加 Intel 都放棄, 咁 WiMAX 死得....
講快, 又唔夠 WiFi快, 更唔被世界所用, 一係佢就直接開發 4.5G or 5G啦...
upload / download 最少都 200M 以上~

呵呵,之前有幾部 NB 用 WiMax
而家蟹晒啦~

台灣剛剛先試行緊WIMAX

WiMAX同LTE既衝突唔大
LTE Cover既範圍大好多
WiMAX其實似WiFi多D
真正好似而家3G or HSPA咁樣既係LTE

這樣台灣點算?

都不知香港個 Wifi Plan 行不行得通 XD
