Realistic View on WiMax

10/25/05 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: WiFi

OneCleveland seems to be pushing the WiMax technology as an alternative to good ol' wifi, but I still say that economic and effectivity reasons, wifi is going to be around for a long time. Case in point is made by Sascha Meinrath.

What's important here isn't that the equipment isn't (yet) working -- but rather that there's still an amazing amount of work still to be done before WiMax is ready for prime time.

I agree with Sascha that WiMax isn't necessarily a replacement, but another nice tool in a networking grabbag. Cleveland has to get out of this "either-or" mindset, or we'll never get anywhere.
