WiMAX Forum Supports European Commission Decision on Harmonization of the 2.6 GHz Frequency Band

July 2008
Portable Design;Jul2008, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p9
The article reports on the announcement of the WiMAX Forum that it is supporting the European Commission's regulation relating to the 2.6 gigaHertz (GHz) frequency band in Europe. The frequencies including 2.3, 2.6 and 3.5 GHz are key bands for Mobile WiMAX technology. The 2.6 GHz decision affords European Union administrations to make decisions in relation to the technology, services and usage that can be deployed within the band. The intention of the regulation is that the market can decide which technology to deploy in the 2.6 GHz band.
