The article focuses on the projection of trends for mobile broadband network access (BWA). The uses of separate mobile wireless technologies for cellular voice and for limited, low-speed data led to higher-speed data services and to operator plans for a much higher-capacity converged mobile services. Consumers carry one or more mobile subscriber units as an important adjunct to the traditional wired broadband access services at work and at home. The overall access market is projected to evolve in two key directions that would benefit BWA including transition from narrowband to broadband and deployment of such capability on a production bases at prices that fit the constraints of business. Mobile BWA may become the default connectivity with an improved capacity. INSET: Will Video Sink The Vision?.
