The article discusses the issue on the compliance of U.S. WiMAX operators to the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) in launching commercial services. Sources say the compliance rule was intended for security purposes but the side effect is it breaks the way the traditional CALEA systems work. A WiMAX radio access configuration being combined with Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem service infrastructure complicate matters, as stated.
