13 million WiMAX subscribers worldwide

January 12 news, market research firm Maravedis, in its thirteenth 4GCounts published report that the fourth quarter of 2010 added 3.7 million users worldwide WiMAX, WiMAX total of over 13 million users, there will still be 2011 5.5 million new users.

As of the fourth quarter of 2010, the global total of more than 600 WiMAX networks, WiMAX Forum Certified by over 274 registered Laptop battery products, of which 61 models, including models 213, base station equipment and mobile WiMAX products.

In the existing 13 million users, ranking the top 50 WiMAX operators have 8.34 million users, these figures indicate, WiMAX users is highly concentrated. Maravedis forecasts, WiMAX users by 2011 will reach 18.5 million by the end, while the LTE subscribers will reach 6.5 million.

In the 4G market, WiMAX and LTE are considered to be more competition, although LTE development should be later than WiMAX, LTE stamina but significantly higher than WiMAX. Currently, LTE is sought after by the global Laptop battery operators is expected to end in 2011, on a global scale, based on the FDD and TDD standards of commercial 4G network will reach 58 and 3, if coupled with trial network, the number will reach 222 and 25.

This report co-author Esteban Monturus said first half of 2011, including in Europe, there will be more operators introduce relevant LTE investment plans.

In the field of TD-LTE, is also expected to have a good development. Recently, the Indian carrier is planning to recently allocated 2.3GHz spectrum for TDD LTE network deployments. Recently, Qualcomm and Ericsson co-2.3GHz frequency bands in India shows the TDD LTE mobility in the outdoor environment. In fact, apart from China, India, other than operators in Germany and Malaysia will also be favorable TD-LTE supporters.

"We believe that LTE operators, there will be 55% using FDD standard, while another 25% of the operators will use the TDD and FDD mixed deployment. Operators are on the TDD and FDD standards for research, in order to find better entry point, so that better integration of the two standards, to provide better network services. "4GCounts leader Cintia Garza said.
