Yesterday I gave a keynote address at the 4G Wireless Evolution conference. Since I assume I get invited to these things because I'm controversial, I picked the title "Wi-Fi: The Real 4G" and used my 45 minutes to hit several points:
1. All key 4G technologies have been and are being pioneered by Wi-Fi (3-5 year lead over WiMAX or LTE!).
2. Wi-Fi will be the dominant solution for mobile data offload.
3. 4G technologies represent a wireless tipping point with the result they will revolutionize backhaul and eventually the first mile (via wireless ISPs). And, of course, Wi-Fi products lead here as well.
Finally, I closed with two slides on our new wireless ISP, netBlazr. Here's the deck.
