NSN Backs Away From WiMax

Source: Unstrung
As Nokia Siemens Networks prepares to revamp its mobile development strategy with the planned $650 million acquisition of Nortel Networks Ltd.'s key CDMA and LTE access wireless assets, the vendor has made another significant wireless strategy move -- it's scaling down its focus on WiMax.

The Finnish-German vendor has decided to divert R&D resources away from WiMax to Evolved High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) and Long Term Evolution (LTE), and will no longer make its own standalone WiMax base station, but will rely more on partners instead, Marc Rouanne, head of radio access at NSN, tells Unstrung.
