Bonus: WiMAX coming to India soon too...

While going through the Bharati Exhibitions site I came across this too... WOW!! WiMAX coming to India soon. So we can expect many WiMAX devices to pop in to India by the end of this year or early next year.

For those scratching their heads....

Wikipedia defines it this way:
"WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology that provides wireless data in a variety of ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called WirelessMAN. "

In simple terms, its similar to Wifi but has a longer range like the 3G, so there may be a service provider for the same... I heard of WiMAX based modems also.... Anyone else who would like to shed more light on this???

You can register yourselves for the event here, which is going to be on Aug22nd 2008 at New Delhi.
