Alcatel mulls WiMAX development centre

February 21, 2005

India - Alcatel announced it is considering opening a global research centre for the emerging wireless access standard WiMAX, according to local press reports. The level of investment that could be assigned to the new facility has not been revealed. The announcement follows statements from Alcatel and Intel earlier in the month, that they would work together this year towards the commercial launch of WiMAX networks by mid-2006. The two companies intend to share resources in order to build, integrate and conduct interoperability testing for both Intel's WiMAX chips and Alcatel's WiMAX network infrastructure. They will also work together to lobby national regulators and governments to promote the WiMAX standard.

Significance: Given the size and infrastructure needs of the market, India's adoption of WiMAX technology is arguably essential for the rapid development of the standard to maturity. For this reason, lobbying of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) by WiMAX's most powerful and 'invested' proponent, Intel, can be expected in 2005, as broadband investment gathers pace in the market.
