HICKORY, NC, August 25, 2009—Whenever the world’s top athletes come together in international competition, it is reasonable to assume that Andrew Solutions, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communication systems and products, is supporting wireless communications there, as it will be for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Future of WiMAX uncertain, as Clearwire investors write off billions

Future of WiMAX uncertain, as Clearwire investors write off billions of dollars: Analysys Mason comment

However, Analysys Mason doubts that the developing market offers sufficient growth potential and size to sustain continued investment from such heavyweights as Cisco Systems, Intel and Motorola without additional sales in the developed markets. But in the developed markets of Europe and the USA, we see some early signs of a difficult future for WiMAX.
