“Just as the commercial Internet took root in 1993, the wireless Internet is coming of age today, and 4GWE is the one event that’s designed to educate attendees on the latest trends and opportunities, and provide a networking forum to meet the innovators who are best positioned to address these new opportunities,” said Carl Ford, partner and community developer for Crossfire Media.
“Over the last 10 years, ITEXPO has played a key role in propelling the VoIP industry, and we believe that the 4GWE Conference at ITEXPO will provide the same type of content, networking and partnering opportunities that are needed to help evolve and mature the 4G industry,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC president and ITEXPO conference chairman.
“ITEXPO in Miami this past February flourished despite the shaky economy, setting a new attendance record. Offering the 4GWE educational program for the first time contributed to that success. That launch event quickly established 4GWE as the conference where the wireless/ mobile industry’s foremost experts help attendees prepare to seize short- and long-term opportunities delivering 4G services,” added Tehrani.

Emerging Area's & Trends In WiMAX Technology (802.16)
WiMAX stands for `Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access`, and it`s a digital, wireless communications system, also called IEEE 802.16. It was developed to help improve wireless communication networks in large metropolitan / urban areas, and it can give wireless broadband access to users over far larger distances than previously possible - to 30 miles from a fixed station and up to 10 miles from a mobile station. This is compared to the original WiFI wireless LAN, which can generally only provide access for 300 feet from a transmitting station.
