Cisco WiMAX Acquisition?

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Unstrung reports that several divisions of Cisco is looking at WiMAX. Does that mean that Cisco is pulling out its big fat checkbook once again for the WiMAX companies? It would be likely if Cisco greenlights WiMAX. They have previously taken the public stance against it. But if they change their mind, they will be the second heavyweight to do so after Qualcomm.

In other news, Clearwire's spending on WiMAX is predicted to be in excess of 4 Billion this year. Same for Sprint Nextel. Given that much of money being poured into WiMAX gear, it is not surprising that companies start looking at that market. That would mean only good times for startups since none of the big guns have anything ready for market yet.

Good times for WiMAX.
