Intel predicts the WiMAX will see a strong growth in 2008:
A number of new WiMAX devices will debut in 2008, including built-in WiMAX modules for notebooks utilizing Intel's forthcoming Motevina platform, 802.16e-compliant CPE (consumer premise equipment) products and PCMCIA cards, Viswanathan noted.

WiMAX networks being set up around the globe starting in 2007 will gradually commence commercial operations in 2008 and will encourage development of the world's WiMAX industry, Viswanathan stressed.

Intel's current strategy is to focus on the development of WiMAX chips for the development of CPE products, with an aim of exploring the size of the WiMAX market, stated Viswanathan, who indicated that Intel is developing chips for base stations by investing in other companies such as Picochip and IP Access.
