The article presents the author's view regarding the consumer demand on the third generation (3G) wireless networks that match performance, quality and cost of wired networks. Initial WiMAX deployments will operate using larger channel bandwidths at the expense of in-building signal penetration. As the frequency use is increased, buildings become much more reflective, reflecting a direct line of sight to the antenna. Demand for versatile yet cost-effective 3G infrastructure solutions is on the rise in Europe and in the U.S. Network operators realize that wholesale replacement of equipment with each new technology does not make business sense, as deployed hardware needs to be upgradeable and standards-based.
