will test 4G throughout 2011, but WiFi and 802.11n will be of paramount importance as more wireless-only devices invade the
Clear Cloud is seeing big developments in the Cloud and Enterprise 4G Wireless.
But connecting users to the cloud–and the huge amount of of applications and services delivered over the cloud
–requires connectivity, particularly for the millions of users that have new generation of mobile devices that don’t
have ethernet ports.
That’s right– 2011 will be a huge year for
4G–no matter how you define it–is going
to dominate the news and the public mindshare throughout the year, as Sprint launches WiMax in major markets, T-Mobile grows
its HSPA+ offerings and Verizon and AT&T both launch their LTE initiatives in the United States.

some relevant and cool (for the RF wireless curious) images and video...enjoy....
As the carriers grow their 4G
networks, however, I believe enterprise adopters won’t be able to count on the availability of 4G speeds in all the
places that matter to them, as long as 4G coverage remains in isolated islands rather than concentrated regions.
For 2011, 4G will be an option that people want but
won't rush out to their store to get, and users will certainly show up with a handful of devices that support various 4G types,
but 4G won’t be an operational must have through the year. So for enterprises and 4G, 2011 will be a testing and check
WiFi, on the other hand, will only
continue to grow in importance for almost every enterprise. 802.11n-ready equipment has been available for several years,
ratified as a standard for more than a year, and enterprise products are entering their fourth generation of development already.
Speeds are super fast and WiFi companies are delivering
better equipment with smarter management, adaptability and reliability in the face of interference, noise and large client
This year I’ll
be interested in whether *WiFi Direct (see paragraph immediately below) will bring any operational benefits for enterprise
networks and users. It is believed by many to be a big issue this year. +++++++++++++ *What is WiFi Direct? Wi-Fi Direct is a new capability of Wi-Fi wireless networking for consumer
products. Wi-Fi Direct is a greatly improved form of ad hoc mode WiFi that allows devices to also
connect to each other directly rather than solely through access points.
The creators of Wi-Fi Direct are quick to point out that it does not replace a broadband router. Instead, the technology
is designed primarily to simplify the sharing of resources (including printers) between mobile devices. However, with an enabled
Internet modem and home computers, a Wi-Fi Direct home network could also share an Internet connection easily enough without
the help of a router. ++++++++++++++++++++++++
I also think arguments around
enterprise WiFi architecture will continue to get bigger and bigger. Motorola’s announcement of its WiNG5 architecture–moving
more network intelligence toward the edge–is a dramatic technological shift from a company that was previously heavily
invested in keeping the network intelligence in the core.
I suspect more WiFi companies will see the light, and that Motorola was correct by putting network intelligence back
at the AP (access point), and that removing the central controller altogether from the data path removes the biggest performance
bottleneck and frees the APs to serve more clients and more traffic effectively. And better performance at the edge will be
paramount as users continue to flood enterprise networks with WiFi-enabled iPads, Android phones and BlackBerrys.
Blackberry, RIM’s forthcoming PlayBook tablet is a large company bet too.......for
RIM, which is taking a great leap to retain relevance and mindshare for mobile consumers and enterprise adopters alike, as
the Playbook is both a new hardware form factor and a new mobile OS (the latter based on RIM’s QNX acquisition).
I’d say the PlayBook will be a moderate success
at best, as the requirement to tie to a BlackBerry smartphone for e-mail and enterprise connectivity is shortsighted and limiting.
But I suspect the OS and software will be a major winner,
which is ultimately more important to the future of the company. I’ve liked what I’ve seen from RIM in terms of
developer outreach over the last year, and I suspect QNX will pay off big to attract more of that core audience. And better
apps will equal more consumer appeal for later BlackBerry devices running QNX, whatever the form factor.
