Taiwan's Market Intelligence Center (MIC) says shipment volume of Taiwanese WiMAX customer premise equipment (CPE) is expected to reach 651,000 units in the second half of this year, growing 800 percent compared with the second half of 2006. Full-year shipment value of the Taiwanese WiMAX CPE industry in 2007 is expected to rise to approximately $159 million, up from $22.6 million in 2006.
Taiwanese CPE providers are expected to play a key role in the growth of WiMAX. MIC says shipments in the second half of 2007 will be impacted by major WiMAX operators migrating from network trials to commercial networks. In addition, various Taiwanese makers have made struck contract-production partnerships with international telecom equipment vendors, including Motorola, Alcatel, Alvarion, and SR Telecom, which is expected to help the Taiwanese WiMAX CPE industry reach mass production scales.
