PA Consulting talks about IP in developing the WiMAX ecosystem


Graham Bell, Consultant in Wireless Technology at PA Consulting Group, will talk about intellectual property at the forthcoming WiMAX Forum Congress in Taipei, Taiwan, on 14 April 2010.

Graham will address the role of intellectual property (patents, patent pools, licensing & royalties) in developing the WiMAX ecosystem as part of the WiMAX on a plate breakfast briefing session (07.45hrs) on Wednesday 14 April at The WiMAX Forum Congress Asia 2010.

He will be reviewing the opportunities and threats of IPR in the WiMAX ecosystem, including a comparison of patent pools in LTE vs WiMAX and considering the chances of success in either. He will also discuss of the role of IPR royalties in encouraging take-up of a technology: should caps be applied on IPR by the industry or do such caps limit innovation.
