Wimax World in Beijing
I've come 17 April 2007 night in Beijing, the venue itself start from 18-21 April. It's my second time come here. The weather is perfect, 10-20 degree celcius. Fortunately I've stayed the same hotel with the Wimax World venue. The conference divided to few class such as Service Provider, Application and Service, Technology, Universal Broadband and Wireless Cities. In the Service Provider Track, I show one conference about Business Case for Wireless Indonesia. I have attended the Wireless in Indonesia session, but unfortunately is cancelled by the host. Mr Berge, the host, told me he already invited many Indonesian telco to become presenter, but no one response :-(( Haiyaaaa. I think he send to the wrong company, he should send to my company.
In Day 1, half day is on the big conference, talking about Wimax/Broadband wireless prospect and also deployment Wimax in India. One the last half session is finished after TD-SCDMA session. TD-SCDMA topic is very interesting. China use their own standard for their 3G. It's smart move as they don't need to pay fee to Qualcomm. The presenter say it will use TD-SCDMA as 3G HSDPA and also for Wimax. But for Wimax, I think TD-SCDMA still not good solution for Internet as Internet need higher pipe.
One second half day, with the Yankee Group research about mobile prospect and also mobile application.
