Gigabit WiMAX-IEEE802.16m

Looking beyond current 802.16e Mobile WiMAX technology, the IEEE hopes to boost speeds of 802.16m to 1Gbps by 2009 and possibly merge it with LTE.

Calling it gigabit WiMAX, the standards-setting organization is mapping an aggressive timeline to develop the new technology standard by the end of 2007 and have it finalized by the end of 2009.
