WiMAX - The Global Broadband Standard

As the worldwide telecommunications industry heads to- wards the end of the third quarter of 2008 the role of broadband wireless and WiMAX technology is emerg- ing as a viable broad- band option for cus- tomers globally.

nies help insure that the technology continues to be improved and pro- moted heavily. There are too many ecosystem companies substantially invested in the technology for them to give up easily on WiMAX. And a final benefit is that the synergistic ef- forts of these ecosystem companies will ensure competition and rapid re- ductions in costs to carriers and con- sumers. The technology should only get more affordable.

Progress is made weekly by com-

panies who are already fine tuning

The importance of WiMAX is great-

er than it has ever been. However, choices by WiMAX adherents to so-

lidify the technology into fixed and

mobile standards slowed the overall adoption of the technology. Happily that battle is essentially settled now as we end 2008---and mobile WiMAX has won.

The Technology

When discussing the viability of WiMAX the conversation should be- gin with its ecosystem. One thing that the WiMAX Forumhas clearly done very well is develop a wide-ranging ecosystem of companies that are building solutions for the technology. This ecosystem ranges from silicon companies building the chipsets and solutions sets that power the overall technology to the radio vendors, an- tenna vendors, software developers and others that support various as- pects of the overall solution.

This single aspect of the technology may perhaps be more important than a single standard or even interoper- able capabilities. Why? The vested interests of these supporting compa-

the technology. Recent chipset an-

nouncements include new low-power chips designed to facilitate handheld

units to numerous improved fixed/

portable and mobile WiMAX solu- tions with new capabilities. There have been announcements from

firms such as Nokia of new devices

designed to work with mobile WiMAX. And Google’s Android software plat- form is being incorporated into new handheld devices slated to reach the market in 2009.

The one area that has been some- what slow to coalesce has been prod- uct interoperability testing. With mo- bile WiMAX technology or 802.16e having essentially won the battle for supremacy the next big step is to

achieve what is called Wave 2 cer- tification which supports multiple-in- put-multiple-output (MIMO) antenna sets plus enhanced quality of service

(QOS) capabilities. The first Wave 2

tests are already well underway.

On the fixed/portable front several

solutions have achieved certified in- teroperability ratings. And it is clear that carriers large and small are

moving forward with fixed/portable


broadband wireless solutions, even choosing proprietary ones, in order to meet customer demand. In fact,

Clearwire alone has garnered up- wards of 500,000 customers using a precursor WiMAX technology rather

than a certified product. However,

Clearwire certainly chose to not wait on the “right” technology but on one that was good enough at the time. It is notable that WiMAX precursor technology is robust enough to com- pete strongly with existing DSL and Cable Company offerings. Of course, with the huge Clearwire and Sprint merger of assets coupled with the new investment for the company, Clearwire will move forward with its own mobile WiMAX city deployments

near the end of 2008. Its first test of

the technology in Portland, Oregon has gone well.

If as they say that imitation is the

sincerest form of flattery WiMAX

technology can already be counted a resounding success in that it may have, at least partially, inspired the faster emergence of the competing long term evolution (LTE) technol- ogy standard that uses very similar OFDM-based modulation schemes and protocols to support mobile IP- based broadband wireless for carri- ers. While LTE technology appears to be at least a couple of years behind WiMAX in its deployment roadmap, the fact that it adopted such a simi- lar form reinforces that the all-IP path WiMAX chose will be the platform for tomorrow’s successful carriers. And it offers hope for an eventual consoli- dation of the two approaches, which would reduce costs and improve ac- cess for consumers.

The US Market

In the USA the WiMAX conversa- tion began with one question---what

is Sprint going to do? That question was answered with the announced merger of spectrum assets between Sprint and Clearwire. Sprint, which was long mired in trying to digest its acquisition of Nextel, had been

hampered in finding the wherewithal

to do something with WiMAX. Sprint previously announced that it would launch a nationwide WiMAX network and in fact at one point announced

a planned venture with Clearwire to collaboratively build-out a nationwide WiMAX network.

Then, business pressures led Sprint to back out of its Clearwire agree- ment along with replacing its CEO and other key executives. And at that point finding the funding to do some- thing with Clearwire seemed prob- lematic at best.

But Sprint hit a home run with its re- cent announcement of its intent to merge its spectrum assets with Clear- wire and take a major ownership po- sition. This deal also depended upon added investment from Google, Intel, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks. One inter- esting aspect of the deal is that the cable companies have garnered the right to use some of the spectrum at the edge of their networks, likely in femtocell deployments.

This deal made terrific sense for all

companies involved, and if all goes through as expected, a nationwide US based WiMAX network would be a bellwether event for the US broad- band wireless market.

The question then arises is there op- portunity for other carriers. Recent

research indicates that there is con- siderable opportunity especially for carriers in rural or niche markets. However, the success and scale of such opportunities will be heavily dependent upon the willingness of licensed spectrum holders to collab- orate with these other carriers. Car- riers such as Digital Bridge Commu- nications, AMATechtel, Towerstream, Covad Wireless, Sparkplug and oth- ers are moving aggressively to pro- mote niche or rural plays in the US market.

Firms such as NextWave, which holds considerable spectrum assets in several bands, have previously an- nounced an intention to leverage that spectrum with its carrier customers.

NextWave recently sold $150 mil- lion of its AWS spectrum to several larger carriers with the bulk of that

going to T-Mobile. The firm retained

its WiMAX compatible spectrum and could still choose to partner with

smaller firms to build out service.

Likewise, Clearwire itself could sub-

let or partner in some markets, most probably smaller or rural markets, to carriers with a business plan built for those environs. Can this happen---

will spectrum holders work with firms

like those mentioned above? Abso- lutely it can. However the question is, will spectrum holders enact a protec- tionist philosophy towards their spec- trum or will they partner to leverage it more quickly?

The Global Outlook

Whatever problems may have act- ed to slow US WiMAX and broad- band wireless adoption, the rest of the world appears to have hardly taken notice. There are over 250 an- nounced WiMAX deployments or tri- als worldwide. Adoption of WiMAX

technology has been solid in Europe, South America, Asia and The Middle East and to be fair in the US too. In fact, US-based Clearwire is the WiMAX carrier with the largest pure WiMAX customer base at this time. But will that continue?

There have been potentially huge WiMAX deployments recently dis- closed in India, with TATA Networks and others for example, that could potentially serve millions of custom-

ers on a nationwide scale. Clearly the basic value proposition of broadband wireless and WiMAX remains solid. Especially for countries with less developed wireline infrastructure, broadband wireless offers carriers the opportunity to leapfrog massive

and costly fiber optic network build-

outs to support broadband. The cost savings in using broadband wireless to serve major populations is hard to refute. The ability to deploy rapidly is a sound advantage as is the poten- tial to offer numerous new generation types of IP-based services that mobile carriers could never previously sup- ply. As 2008 has moved on we have heard numerous announcements that countries around the world are beginning to auction WiMAX compat- ible spectrum---so the future looks bright overall for the technology.

However, there have been numerous announcements this past year from major US and International carriers such as AT&T, Verizon and others that they intended to use the new long term evolution (LTE) technology instead. This development is clearly a threat to widespread WiMAX adop- tion. But there are already conversa- tions afoot for an eventual re-mar- riage of the two technologies under a single standard. In either case, it will be a while before LTE hits the mar-


ket, likely close to two years. A lot can happen in two years.


WiMAX has experienced significant

challenges, not the least of which

has been time to market with certi-

fied products. However, building new

wireless standards from scratch to be ready for massive scale worldwide rollouts is no small task. Some early over hyping of the technology did not help in that it pushed expectations

ahead of the practical curve of what did occur.

Still, it seems that an all IP-based broadband wireless platform is the technology of the future. And while, wireline broadband services show few signs of slowing growth or replace- ment with WiMAX or WiMAX-type technologies, it seems reasonable to expect that much of tomorrow’s tele- communications growth will come from advanced IP-based broad- band wireless services. The state of WiMAX is sound.

WiMAX Services in the US

On May 7, 2008, the WiMAX industry in the U.S. got a mega - watt jump-start with the announcement of the “new” Clearwire, a WiMAX service pro - vider whose nation - wide mobile broad - band network plans were backed by $3.2 billion in funding from Google, Comcast, Intel, Time Warner Cable and others.

The existing Clearwire Corporation, a provider of WiMAX services to more than 460,000 subscribers in more than 50 different markets, combined its operations with the WiMax assets of Sprint Nextel to form the “new”

Clearwire, a network operator with licensed spectrum covering almost all of the major U.S. population cen- ters. The company plans to use Mo- bile WiMAX technology -- which sup- ports true broadband speeds over distances of several miles or more from tower to user -- to deliver com- mercial and wholesale services over a nationwide footprint, with services available in several markets before the end of 2008.

The May 7 announcement was really a twin set of booster rockets, with the investment cash joining the combi- nation of the rich spectral and infra- structure assets of the two biggest WiMAX players. With $3.2 billion in hand, the new Clearwire is well on its way to the $5 billion total that Sprint had said was needed to fully fund its planned nationwide WiMAX network. That operation, which Sprint had called “Xohm,” now lives on inside Clearwire, a new company with pow-


erful partners and an expanded set of deliverables, including broadband services for small, medium and large businesses, as well as wholesale re- seller contracts for its cable-provider partners.

While the highly anticipated launch of Xohm/Clearwire services first in Bal- timore, then in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Portland, Ore. should bring discussion about WiMAX services to the front pages of local newspapers and business magazines, they won’t be the only WiMAX networks oper- ating in the country. In fact, several smaller providers are already running working WiMAX networks, signing up customers both in regional rural mar- kets as well as in established metro locations, using the technology’s ease of deployment and lower opera- tional costs to compete with existing wireline broadband offerings while opening up new markets to custom- ers attracted by WiMAX’s mobility


Two of the leading smaller U.S. WiMAX service providers are Tow- erstream Corp., which provides

fixed-WiMAX services to small and

medium businesses as a T1 re- placement, and DigitalBridge Com- munications, which is providing Mo- bile WiMAX services to select rural or secondary metro markets as a DSL or cable modem competitor.

Towerstream, which operates in nine major metro markets (New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Seattle, Dallas/ Fort Worth and Providence, R.I.), re- corded nearly $2.5 million in revenue

for the fiscal quarter ending June 30,

2008, a 20 percent growth from the previous quarter. By signing up big- name customers like ESPN, Netf- lix and even Intel, Towerstream is proving that its business-broadband offerings (like its mid-range 8 Mbps connection for $999 a month) are showing increased traction.

DigitalBridge, which was launched

in 2005, first started offering WiMAX

services in Roxburg, Idaho, in 2007.

In 2008, the company added servic-

es in several cities, including Idaho Falls, Idaho, Sioux Falls, S.D., and Jackson Hole, Wyo., to its list of more than 15 cities with its “Bridge- MAXX” services. The Jackson Hole deployment, announced in June,

was the first to use WiMAX Forum Certified Mobile WiMAX equipment.

DigitalBridge also closed a $20 mil- lion funding round earlier in the year, showing that investors, as well as customers, believe in the promise of WiMAX services in the U.S.

Part of the allure of WiMax for small- er service providers is its ability to by- pass the copper local loop -- and the leasing costs and controls that come with it. “WiMax is a great technology for us to avoid the phone companies,” said Towerstream’s Thompson. Digi-

tal Bridge’s Dunne concurred: “With WiMax, there’s nobody between us and the client -- I cannot believe that is happening. I’m very passionate be-

cause for the first time, it feels like the

last mile is solved.”

Other smaller U.S. WiMAX providers include:

-- AT&T, which offers WiMAX servic- es in Alaska, Nevada and Texas, in mainly experimental commercial de- ployments. AT&T has no announced plans to expand its WiMAX opera- tions at this time.

-- Xanadoo LLC, which offers Mobile WiMAX service to more than 13,000 customers in several small towns in Texas, Oklahoma and Illinois, with plans to add more markets in 2008. In July, Xanadoo announced an inno- vative “pre-paid” pricing plan where users could purchase Internet access by weekly or monthly increments, much like long-distance calling-card plans.

-- Pipeline Wireless, a Boston-area business-services provider that in

2008 received certification from the

FCC to offer WiMAX services in the recently approved 3.65 GHz spec- trum band.

-- MetroBridge, actually a Canadian company that also provides WiMAX services in the Phoenix area. In Feb- ruary of 2008, MetroBridge acquired the assets of Utah Broadband LLC,

which will allow MetroBridge to offer services in the Salt Lake City area as well. MetroBridge had nearly $2 mil- lion (Canadian) in revenues for the second quarter of 2008, ending June


-- Consolidated Telecommunications Company, a cooperative in rural Min- nesota, in 2008 started using Mobile WiMAX in the 700 MHz band, mainly to reach rural customers. The com- pany, which also provides wireline

and fiber services, expects to expand

its WiMAX offerings.

-- Solo Direct Connect, a Quad Cit- ies, Iowa-area provider, announced in 2007 plans to offer Mobile WiMAX services to the Iowa cities of Daven- port and Bettendorf, as well as the nearby Illinois towns of Moline and East Moline and Rock Island, using Cisco/Navini gear in the 2.5 GHz band.

On the Sprint/Clearwire side of things, the original Sprint Xohm “soft launch” markets of Baltimore, Chicago and Washington, D.C., are all still slated to be online before the end of the year. The “old” Clearwire is going ahead with its previous plans to launch Mo- bile WiMAX services in Portland by the fourth quarter of 2008, and is al- ready building out new networks in Las Vegas, Atlanta and Grand Rap- ids, Mich., which should all be opera- tional some time in 2009. Sprint has also already announced that it is de- ploying gear in Boston, Philadelphia and the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but does not plan to launch networks in those regions until after the merger deal closes as expected during the fourth quarter of 2008.

Introduction During the 1990’s the broadband wireless in- dustry became a business of thousands of wireless


During the 1990’s the broadband wireless in- dustry became a business of thousands of wireless ISPs throughout the US and around the world.

Probably the tipping point came when US regulators and many Internation- al regulators apportioned spectrum for license-free use. This decision permitted carriers to launch service wherever and whenever they desired

so long as their equipment met gov-

ernment specifications.

More recently, and especially on the International front, a large amount of licensed spectrum has been released for commercial broadband use. Ar- guably however, the radio products based on the 802.11 standard that

evolved to support the early first

launches of citywide broadband wire- less networks may have been just as

important. Until carriers began offer- ing radio products with media access controllers (MACs) that supported longer-range and more interference resistant services, the industry had no real teeth.

Top10 Questions

you should ask your WiMAX Vendor

Tim Sanders

Today of course the broadband wire- less industry has evolved, particu- larly on the radio vendor front to one that offers numerous proprietary and standards based systems that work in both unlicensed and licensed spectrum from as low as 700 MHz to 60 GHz and higher frequencies. Car- riers can utilize proprietary systems still based on 802.11 formats or the newer 802.16 standard (WiMAX) for both point-to-multipoint (PtMP) and point-to-point (PTP) applications.

In the last five to six years alone

broadband radio vendors have de- veloped solutions that offer true non- line-of-sight and self-install capability (primarily in licensed bands) as well as solutions that support affordable bandwidth applications as high as 1 Gbps. In fact, especially for new carriers in emerging markets, the plethora of choices can be dizzying. What radio product will best meet the carrier’s needs? How does a carrier choose the best radio and vendor for its needs? The answers to these questions are important, because vendor choice commits carriers to a platform that may not be easily ad- justed or replaced. So how should carriers go about selecting the right vendor for them?

Choosing a Vendor

Opinions abound on the subject of how to best choose a vendor, but I believe that the choice of radio ven-

dor begins first with the carrier’s

business plan. The carrier needs to identify the types of customers it

can best serve and determine their bandwidth and service needs as a first step. Once the service require- ments are laid down, then the carrier

can begin fitting radio products into

a matrix that supports its business needs and its markets. Certainly other requirements impinge this deci- sion---not the least of which is the ge- ography the carrier needs to serve.

Today’s broadband wireless and WiMAX focused carriers operate in both urban and rural markets. They may also serve both residential and business class customers with wide- ly varying needs. These types of RF environments create problems that are very complex to solve. Carriers

may need more than one type of ra- dio technology to meet all of these needs. Can a single vendor supply everything you need? Or should car- riers be open to multiple vendors? The answer for each wireless ISP is likely different and lies first in un- derstanding its own needs clearly. However, how you approach vendors and the questions you ask them are crucial to your ability as a broad- band wireless carrier to succeed. To that end I propose these Top Ten core questions to ask of all vendors

before you make a final decision.


The Top Ten

1 What frequencies and standards do you support? And what customer seg- ments are your models de- signed to serve?

Most vendors by sheer necessity or by technological choice pick niches within the broadband wireless and WiMAX marketplace to serve. Only a few major vendors offer wide-ranging product lines that serve virtually all potential needs for a carrier. It can certainly be argued that special- izing in a handful of frequencies or technical standards can convey an advantage in terms of product de- sign and focus. Vendors do develop reputations within the marketplace for being especially adroit with vari- ous elements of the broadband wire- less equation. One company that is strongly focused on PTP (point-

to-point) backhaul solutions for ex- ample might offer a best of breed product in that category. And while it may also manufacture PtMP (point- to-multi-point) radios for end-user ac-

cess, another firm may be superior in

that regard for a carrier’s particular needs. In the past, particularly with proprietary technologies broadband wireless ISPs typically had to choose a single vendor for PtMP at the very least and then mix and match back haul units.

Also too, carriers sometimes choose to deploy radios in multiple spectrum bands such as 900 MHz to reach customers with NLOS problems (900 MHz will penetrate some tree cover and walls at limited range) and also use higher frequency unlicensed bands for PtMP service with other customers or customer segments. More recently, with the availability of

3.65 GHz PtMP WiMAX systems in the US, carriers have a new tool that offers NLOS capability and higher bandwidth. Similarly carriers using licensed spectrum such as 2.5 GHz might choose to use low-cost 5.8 GHz PTP back haul radios. Later as traffic climbs or in the event of inter- ference carriers can shift to licensed PTP units in spectrum ranges such as 6 GHz, 11 GHz, 18 GHz and 23 GHz.

I tend to favor using best of breed ap- plications if they meet your customer needs and target niches. The down- side of multiple vendors however can be difficulty in pinpointing which ven- dor to contact in case of a problem as the source of the trouble may be unclear. Also, multiple platforms cre- ate a higher learning curve for techni- cal people, because almost all gear,

even WiMAX certified interoperable

gear will likely have slight variations

in performance that require different deployment and maintenance tech- niques.

Planning for necessary upgrades as your business changes and grows is

another consideration. Carriers pick- ing a vendor for an overall strategy or

a series of vendors to fulfill various elements of a network deployment have to weigh this option as well.

  • 2 Will your next technol-

ogy upgrade be backwards compatible with my current radios? How do I protect my investment?

For carriers the issue of growth and upgrades is a really big decision point in determining primary and sec- ondary vendors for their networks. If the current systems that vendors offer are pre-WiMAX or proprietary, and almost all still are (although this


is beginning to change), will the car- rier have to deploy hardware up- grades on either the base station or customer premise side to shift to a fully WiMAX-based solution? Or is it possible to simply upgrade via a firm- ware update to use your next genera- tion gear?

This question holds true even if a carrier’s needs are best met with a proprietary solution. Most carriers us-

ing unlicensed band frequencies fit in

this category. There are few WiMAX

product profiles for these spectrum

ranges. However, the vendor may plan upgrades to its product line that are not incremental in performance, standards or technology but require replacement. If this is the case, ex- isting physical infrastructure may have to be replaced to upgrade. It is true that a carrier can simply fix- ture it’s next market with new tech- nology and operate existing markets with legacy equipment. However, this once again creates burden for carri- ers. The carrier must carry multiple types of replacement inventory for failure replacement (increasing in- ventory costs) and it must spend time training technicians in both systems.

3 What is your product roadmap for the next 3 years and next 5 years? How much point-to-multipoint band- width will you be able to pro- vide? And what capacity will your backhaul units be able to provide?

This is a vendor question very simi- lar to the previous one but addresses some more technically granular is- sues. As carriers plan ongoing ser- vices for customers they must plan to support the next generation of ser- vices that their customers will be de- manding, not just the ones customers

need now. Understanding what direc- tions your vendors may go regarding standards, especially in-built support for certain services such as IP-based products like VoIP or Quality of Ser- vice management tools, is important.

Carriers increasingly relate that both residential and business class cus- tomers are asking for more band- width. Carriers estimate that their customers will demand 100 Mbps

connections in as little as five years.

A vendor’s ability to deliver higher bandwidth products is a decision point as well.

Does the vendor plan to add product lines such as backhaul specific prod- ucts or support the new 3.65 GHz spectrum range? If the vendor is fo- cused upon WiMAX products does it plan to offer products for all spectrum ranges that the WiMAX Forum have announced. And what about the new mobile standard long term evolution (LTE)? Does the vendor have a com- mitment to this standard and to roll- ing out products based upon it? If you are a carrier likely to focus upon LTE this is a key question. And perhaps a better one is to ask a vendor if it has sufficient intellectual capital to sup- port all of its product ambitions.

Last but not least confirm that your







backhaul bandwidth that customer demands will place on your net-


4 How are your radio performance metrics prov- en? Is it by lab testing? Or is testing based upon real world customer deploy- ments? Can you speak with your vendor’s customers?

Probably the one area that carriers complain about most often is vendor

performance claims. Vendors have a product to sell so presenting that product in the best light is a neces- sity. That doesn’t mean that vendors are dishonest in their claims. But what it does mean is that vendors will talk about the metrics that are most

outstanding about their products first.

And also, there is a distinct element of the real world that intrudes in any conversation about broadband wire- less.

No two geographies and markets are exactly alike. The RF environment can vary even when two towns are very close together; as can the topology of hills, building shadow, needed range, available tower sites and many more

elements that affect the art form of a wireless deployment. Vendors cannot

field test for every conceivable type

of location. So what vendors often do

is test with beta clients in the field.

How extensive these tests are and in what geographies they were done are important to know. Vendors also perform extensive benchmark testing in lab settings. Radio products must

receive certification from the FCC

and have to meet those testing re-

quirements too. If radios are WiMAX

interoperable certified they will have

undergone additional testing for that functionality.

So it is crucial to ask about how test- ing is accomplished and to judge how closely that testing is to the types of geography your deployments will face. The big key here is to not try for an exact fit, but rather to under- stand the realistic limits of what gear can likely do in the real world relative to benchmark testing. The closer a carrier pushes its chosen radio plat- forms or other components to their designed limits the more likely prob- lems will arise. Staying within the lim- its of what gear can do is a real secret


to success in the industry regardless of chosen platform.

Happily a lot of knowledge about where and how to deploy a given platform can be learned from a ven- dor’s existing customers. In the case of a new platform there won’t be existing customers to describe their experience. But a vendor’s prior cus- tomers could talk about the vendor’s responsiveness to problems, how it handled returns, warranty service, customer service, billing, and more. Always insist upon talking to existing customers; preferably some that the vendor did not recommend.

5 How widely deployed are your units and for how long? How long have you been in business? How many customers do you have worldwide and where are they? Also, how many units have you shipped?

need now. Understanding what direc- tions your vendors may go regarding standards, especially in-built support for

Nothing beats a track record in terms of comfort level for a carrier with a potential vendor. Nevertheless, ven- dors can become stale and drop a bit behind younger more aggressive vendors in terms of product innova- tion. However, for most broadband wireless ISPs reliability is the top characteristic they are looking for in terms of gear. Nothing antagonizes your customer base more than out- ages. Clearly, carriers carry a big bur- den in terms of network management and pre-emptive maintenance tasks that keep a network vibrant and well- tuned---carriers must do their part.

But asking a vendor how long a par- ticular platform has been deployed, especially one making watershed claims of performance and capabil- ity, is essential. Knowing how many customers have been served in the

real world and for how long are key determiners of reliability. It is a rule of thumb axiom amongst many carriers that almost any brand new platform will experience bugs when it hits the field and this is my personal experi- ence.

customers. It bodes well for any car- rier to ask to see data on actual ship- ping times and to have a clear under- standing of how quickly a vendor can turn product around.

If your carrier is facing tight deadlines

for deployment for cash flow reasons

Many years ago my former wireless

ISP had used a tried and true and very reliable vendor product. When that vendor introduced a new, im- proved version of a radio that had been completely re-engineered we happily bought it and became among the very first carriers to widely de- ploy it in our network. Approximately

5 firmware versions later the pain of

the problems we were experiencing almost magically went away after that last upgrade. The lesson here isn’t to reject new platforms---we

had every reason to expect it to work

well. It is rather to perform some field

testing yourself before committing to a widespread deployment on a new platform.


How long will it take

me to get shipments and do you guarantee shipping times? And what quantities can I get per shipment?

The broadband wireless industry is arguably in its golden age world- wide. The interest in and adoption of broadband wireless technologies is at an all time high. Strangely enough,

vendors can become a victim of this interest and success if the demand begins outstripping their ability to manufacture and ship products in a timely fashion. Many vendors in the broadband wireless space outsource the bulk of their manufacturing to

other specialized firms. And they may

not actually have complete control of their ability to produce product for

or any others, this is a question that needs to go to the top of the list. In general, choosing the right platform I believe is more important than a platform you can get within a certain period of time. But for some carriers this can be an issue. And it is certain- ly an issue with ongoing operations. Ask also how often they have experi- enced product delays in the past and how long they were. Also, what were the causes of the delays? A vendor that has never had a product delay is probably rare. How the vendor choos- es to answer this question whether reluctantly or very openly should be telling in your estimation of how good the vendor relationship will be.

7 Do you have experi- ence providing solutions for our type of carrier? Who are your biggest customers that are similar to us?

For carriers this is probably a major element at all times. After all, carri- ers want vendors who understand their business. A vendor who focused solely upon licensed spectrum prod- ucts in the past but is now offering unlicensed band gear may not under- stand the product needs of this car- rier segment as well. The converse is certainly true also. Carriers vary in their needs and the frequencies of spectrum carriers choose or have available to them often imply signifi- cant differences in the types of net- works and customer bases that these


carriers need to serve.

It is crucial to speak with other carri- ers that the vendor supports to gain an understanding of how well that vendor meets the needs of a carrier like yours.

  • 8 Who are your stron-

gest competitors and why? What do you do better and what do they do better?

This is a bit of a test of character question for vendors, because they always know who their strongest competitors are. If they are reluctant to disclose relative strengths and

weaknesses this can be a red flag.

A vendor who is open about the dif- ferences while maintaining it has a stronger offering and can give good reasons why will garner trust from carriers. After all, a vendor may have a strong competitor who has an en- trenched market presence and brand name that the market knows well. But if your potential vendor feels its newer products are technically superior but less well known, it may be right. How vendors talk about their competition or where they indicate defensiveness about their weaknesses is very telling in how they approach relationships with their customers. It also offers clues in where and how a potential vendor may plan upgrades.

  • 9 Can you provide pro-

fessional services or Inte- gration or do you have part-

ner firms that can do so?

Carriers have a lot on their plate. And increasingly it seems that some vendors are striving to assist carri- ers with more and more services that

create stronger relationships. Some radio vendors for example will as- sist backhaul radio customers with the frequency coordination aspect of buying a licensed frequency PTP radio solution. A few even maintain contacts with spectrum brokers to assist customers in purchasing li- censed PtMP spectrum. Other ven- dors offer integration or network design professional services. Some have been known to assist carriers with mapping technology and GIS in- formation for their potential markets. Some vendors don’t attempt these tasks in-house but outsource them. A good ecosystem of additional service relationships can leverage carriers nicely into a stronger offering to its customers.

All of these can be extremely helpful

to a carrier, particularly a carrier new to the broadband wireless space. For carriers understanding their own inter- nal weaknesses as a company comes

first. Then evaluating vendors for the

additional value they can bring to the

table with other services can signifi- cantly advance your business goals.

10 How is your warranty service handled and how quickly can you turn warranty units around? Also, do you have field tech-

nical staff to help solve dif-

ficult problems and will you

provide this kind of support? What has been your biggest failure with your radio prod- ucts?

For vendors probably the biggest test of character is how they address problems with customers. It is hard to evaluate how helpful a vendor will be when problems crop up in advance of a real world experience. Part of what

broadband wireless ISPs can learn from talking to other vendor custom- ers is how they are treated. But there are many clues in regards to a com- pany’s warranty or repair policy. Are these policies lengthy and offer end- less disclaimers for example? Or are warranties simple and all-inclusive? Likely for most vendors, the real- ity will fall somewhere in the middle.

Even vendors who have significant

boiler-plate in their contracts may be very easy to deal with. They may of- fer performance above and beyond their contractual obligations. Asking other carriers with experience with a particular vendor on warranty service is helpful.

Particularly if a carrier is consider-

ing deploying a platform that is new and has little field burn-in history, un- derstanding how much the vendor is willing to support its customers in the

field with technical assistance can be

a life or death decision point for a car-

rier. Similarly, asking a vendor to tell you what its past problems are gives a carrier useful clues to how that ven- dor will react when problems arise because how the vendor chooses to answer this question is almost more important than the answer itself.



At the end of the day a vendor re- lationship is just that, a relationship. This is not a one time equipment purchase type of transaction. In the broadband wireless space vendor re- lationships are long-reaching as they should be. It is imperative for carri- ers to evaluate not merely technical aspects of products but rather the overall relationship with their vendor; because that relationship, in many

ways, will play a significant role in

success or failure.
