As the event is being held in Singapore on April 28-29, the WiMAX Forum says that a Live WiMAX Tour will be organized as part of the program. The tour will take visitors to Johor Bahru, Malaysia, the latest unwired city and home to WiMAX wireless broadband.
The Live WiMAX Network Tour is supposed to showcase the latest advancements in WiMAX technology. The tour will provide participants with the opportunity to enjoy live WiMAX connectivity on the move in a real-life metropolitan environment.
They’ll also be able to experience seamless mobility between Wi-Fi and WiMAX, which promises uninterrupted connectivity while on the go.
Also on Monday, April 27 will be a half day pre-conference Workshop led by key members of the WiMAX Forum Regulatory Working Group, with inputs from regulators, operators, and specialist vendors.
The interactive workshop will focus on optimizing the use of spectrum that is now widely available across Asia. The goal is to bring together operators, vendors, and regulators in an effort to break down the residual barriers to deployment that exist and explore implementation strategies.
The WiMAX Forum is an industry-led, not-for-profit organization formed to certify and promote the compatibility and interoperability of broadband wireless products based on the harmonized IEEE 802.16e/ETSI HiperMAN standard.
