IEEE suspends wireless group - ZDNet UK News

The IEEE has put on hold its review of a technology that competes with WiMax and is favoured by Qualcomm, due to a squabble involving Intel, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

The move might delay adoption of 802.20 wireless technology, a competitor to WiMax, which Intel has been promoting to provide long-range broadband access for laptop computers and other devices, the Journal said.
