Tech Perspective: Wireless technologies

By techperspective ·
While broadband wireless (MMDS and LMDS) technologies are slowly becoming options for high-speed, fixed wireless networking, Gartner maintains that they don?t yet offer enough advantages for large enterprises. When do you think wireless broadband technologies will emerge as an alternative for large enterprises? Which wireless technology, MMDS or LMDS, do you think will dominate the U.S. markets? What plans do you have to use broadband wireless technologies in your organization? You can read therelated Gartner article, which will be posted 3 A.M. Monday, at http://www.techrepublic.com/article.jhtml?id=r00220001106ggp01.htm.

Tech Perspective: Wireless technologies

While any wireless networking solutions are still relatively new, I still think it will be at least two more years before larger companies catch on. I am sure many are already researching broadband wireless as a solution, ie. Microsoft, Compaq, etc. The difference between MMDS and LMDS will be a toss up once all the bugs are worked out. They both have great advantages, but as with any solution they have disadvantages also. My company at this time as plans to move to a wireless solution, butwe don't foresee it happening until about 5 years from now.
