The WiMAX Forum has been working alongside industry stakeholders, UTC, and the Electric Power Research Institute in finalizing the standards associated with a wireless solution (IEEE 802.16s) targeted at more-than-narrowband speed communications for critical infrastructure industries.

We are delighted to report that this standard is now nearing completion and will deliver a standardized and interoperable solution for utilities and other organizations that have purchased or plan to purchase Upper 700 MHz A Block or other licenses of up to 1.25 MHz of total channel bandwidth.

Major industry equipment manufacturers (including Siemens and General Electric and many others, some of whom are Members of the WiMAX Forum) are potentially interested in aligning their current proprietary offerings to the new Standard.
