Editor's Corner

Readers of this newsletter know that we have devoted much space--including, we hope, reasoned and at times spirited, arguments--to the question of WiMAX and its potential. In this spirit, we are pleased to announce an important new event on WiMAX hosted by FierceMarkets.

WiMAX Strategies will be held on June 7-8 in conjunction with GLOBALCOMM 2006 in Chicago--in fact, it will be the only WiMAX-dedicated event at GLOBALCOMM--and I urge you to register for it.

Panel discussions and presentations at this event will all revolve around two basic questions: What is the business case for fixed and mobile WiMAX, and how do service providers effectively exploit the technology's potential?

The event will benefit anyone interested learning more about a technology that could transform the broadband and wireless market. It will be of particular interest to decision makers at service providers, municipalities considering muni-WiFi, solution and application providers, and more.

This is an important event on the business implications of an emerging technology. For more details, including a full agenda, please visit the event Web site at www.wimaxstrategies2006.com.

A special registration rate is currently available for FierceWiFi readers--I encourage you to take advantage and register today. Please feel free to email me with any questions or suggestions, especially if you are interested in speaking or sponsoring the event. I hope to see many of you there. - Ben
