This paper examines the wireless market and network technology, WiMAX or Long Term Evolution (LTE), cable operators will likely deploy in the not too distant future. Key market trends such as wireless growth, competitive threats and incumbent carrier landline erosion are explored. Technologies are compared based on expected mobile device availability, access technology, core network architecture, and roaming capability. The value of converged services is identified as a cornerstone to cable operators’ wireless strategy. Finally a network technology recommendation is made based on the previous market and technology analysis.
