*Finally, Wireless Data Adoption Accelerates - 75% of US Businesses
Have at Least One Data Application*
1/8/07 - Organizations, primarily large ones, focus on more

*Executive Summary: Fixed Wireless Carriers Report*
A new study from the New Paradigm Resources Group explains how fixed
wireless ISPs are ready to embrace new opportunities.
by New Paradigm Resources Group [January 9, 2007]
Fixed wireless telecommunications is the transmission of voice, video,
or data wirelessly to and from fixed locations. This differentiates it
from portable (or nomadic) and mobile wireless telecommunications.
Portable wireless allows users to send and receive voice, video, or
data from various locations (as Wi-Fi users do when connecting to the
Internet from an airport or a coffee shop). Mobile wireless allows
users to communicate while moving (as cellular phones and onboard
vehicle navigation systems do).
The fixed wireless carriers rely on licensed microwave or millimeter
wave spectrum in the frequencies above 10 GHz. Although fixed wireless
service can and is being provided in unlicensed and/or sub-10 GHz
spectrum, the strongest business model for fixed wireless carriers is
in the licensed spectrum above 10 GHz; accordingly, that is the focus
of the Fixed Wireless Carriers Report^(TM).
