Conference on 2nd Annual Wimax 2011
To be held on 01 April 2011, Venue TBC, New Delhi, India
“Analysing & Exploring the WiMAX business opportunities, challenges, technology solutions and applications in the Asian market”
With WiMAX subscriber base expected to reach 19 million by 2012 and WiMAX equipment market value projected to top US$600 million. Eventually this makes the Indian WiMAX market to present an enormous business opportunity. This conference seeks to provide a comprehensive picture of WiMAX development in India, focusing on the three aspects of policy, industry, and market. Topics include India's telecom and WiMAX spectrum licensing policies, as well as issues related to WiMAX equipment certification; profile of the overall WiMAX industry in India and current development of companies positioned throughout the industry value chain; an overall sketch of the WiMAX subscriber market in India and outline of Indian WiMAX carriers' current status and future development.
India is slated to become the largest WiMAX market in the Asia-Pacific by 2013. A recent study sees India’s WiMAX subscriber base hitting 14 million by Year 2013 and grow annually at nearly 130% which means that in the next four years about 20 per cent of the global WiMAX users will be in India, making it a $13-billion market. India probably will see the world’s lowest end -to-end cost for WiMAX service and will drive costs down further than any other market. Integrated operators will erect WiMAX towers along with CDMA towers and derive further cost advantages. Third-party radio-tower companies have emerged within the last year in India who offer managed tower services for cellular operators. An extension of this would be to provide nationwide WiMAX tower services in managed -service mode. Bringing together thousands of towers is bound to create additional cost benefits to the WiMAX operator. Currently, cellular operators are deriving a 15 -18% cost advantage from shared tower services.
The Internet user population in India will have exceeded 200 million. This will be made possible by lower -cost PCs and notebooks, CPEs below US$40, and cheaper broadband service. It is predicted to accumulate 21 million BWA subscribers by 2014, counting both residential and business segments. WiMAX subscribers should represent the majority of this figure. The Indian market for WiMAX will continue to be one of the most sought after markets for global equipment vendors. The nation promises to offer huge, consistently high growth for the next several years.
It gives us immense pleasure in welcoming you to Virtue Insight’s 2nd Annual WiMAX 2011, and I wish you all the very best.
