Samsung has been ranked at the top of ABI Research’s latest Mobile WiMAX Base Station Vendor Matrix. Motorola and Alvarion claimed the second and third spots in the company’s most recent evaluation of worldwide WiMAX base station vendors.

The Vendor Matrix is an analytical tool developed by ABI Research to provide a clear understanding of vendors’ positions in specific markets. Vendors are assessed on innovation and implementation across several criteria unique to each vendor matrix.

“Samsung and Motorola have maintained the respective market leadership positions they established in our 2008 Matrix,” said ABI research analyst Xavier Ortiz, in a statement. “This year, they ranked very close to one another. Each has a decent amount of R&D invested in this area, as well as comprehensive 802.16 patent portfolios."

“Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Nortel, and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) have all exited the market since 2008, for differing reasons. The result: Alvarion, previously ranked eighth, has risen to take third position as it has gained contracts, and partnered with some of the vendors who left the market. Huawei has also become a major player, when it wasn’t even a significant part of the lineup two years ago, by gaining substantial business with Clearwire.”
