Wed, 06/03/2009 - 6:13am
The WiMAX Forum announced at its second annual Global Congress 2009 in Amsterdam that 14 ecosystem leaders are participating in the first ever commercial WiMAX interoperability and roaming trials. These operators, device manufacturers, equipment vendors, and clearing houses include Aicent, Alvarion, Bridgewater Systems, Cisco, Clearwire, Comfone, DigitalBridge Communications, Intel, iPass, Juniper Networks, MACH, Motorola, Syniverse and Transaction Network Services.

The commercial trial provides another platform for the WiMAX Forum to aggressively position operators and clearinghouses to initiate commercial roaming services which will lead to roaming worldwide. Additionally, the WiMAX Forum provides operators and vendors with all the information needed to understand WiMAX roaming and to launch roaming services at, including technical specifications to follow when implementing roaming and a business agreement template to use with other operators.

Currently, WiMAX Forum tracks more than 475 WiMAX network deployments in 140 countries. A complete detail of WiMAX networks is available at
