After three years of deliberation, the IEEE802.16m air interface definition will be ready for prime time in the next few months. This critical step toward creating true 4G cellular technology based on WiMAX is important enough to earn compliant products a new name: WiMAX 2. Further proof came last month, when an impressive subset of the WiMAX community created the WiMAX 2 Collaboration Initiative to "improve the economics of mobile broadband" and "to create a better value chain for service providers.
