Infonetics: WiMAX equipment market to hit $4.9B in 2013

Despite disparaging comments about WiMAX from industry heavyweights such as Nokia and Ericsson, the WiMAX equipment market appears to have a rosy future ahead of it, according to a new report from Infonetics Research. According to the report, the overall WiMAX market grew 12 percent in the second quarter to $255 million. Alvarion led the market in the second quarter, followed by Motorola, the report said. Even more stunning, however, was the forecast for the years ahead. The WiMAX gear space is expected to increase to $4.9 billion in 2013, according to Infonetics, driven primarily by growth in developing countries. Article
