The Canadian Wi-Fi/WiMAX Market Report,
2007 Edition is NBI/Michael Sone Associates' third report on
this Internet market segment and is the most comprehensive and
rigorously researched document available on the subject in Canada.
At more than 50 pages, the report is divided into three main sections. The first provides an overview of the Canadian Wi-Fi market and concludes with three figures illustrating current and potential hotspot and user growth trends in the industry. This is followed by a tutorial that discusses major issues and technology developments pertinent to the mobile and nomadic computing market, especially the relative merits and constraints of Wi-Fi and WiMAX and comparisons with cellular wireless, cable and DSL technologies. The third section comprises profiles of a dozen-and-a-half significant national and regional service providers. These include the individual telcos and cablecos, as well as a sample of fixed wireless companies, a restaurant chain and a mesh network. Each industry segment has been explored so that the report presents the services offered and planned, marketing activities and pricing, as well as technology and application trends.
