Unwired Outlines WiMax Conversion Plan

By Nancy Gohring

Unwired in Australia is talking about how it will migrate to standards-based WiMax: These stories are a bit inaccurate and in some regard aren’t actually reporting on any news. The company currently has deployed a network using Navini’s proprietary technology. While these stories are presented as if it’s news that Unwired has decided to migrate to WiMax, this really is nothing new. Unwired has been talking about WiMax for a while. However, Unwired is now saying it will begin deploying equipment from Navini that can simultaneously support users of Navini’s proprietary technology and the future mobile 802.16e technology. But Unwired is saying that it will be able to move to 802.16e early next year. That will be difficult, seeing as the 802.16e standard isn’t even finalized so it will be some time before 802.16e gear becomes available. However, some vendors are releasing products that they believe will be software upgradeable to 802.16e, once the standard is set. So I’m guessing that Unwired will use gear from Navini that can support both Navini’s proprietary technology and will be able to eventually also support 802.16e.

Unwired has been incredibly successful in Australia. The operator acquired 5,800 new subscribers in March and April this year.
