Flarion: We Don't Have to Pay

Various folk involved with Unstrung Top 25er Flarion Technologies have contacted us to say that, no, the company hasn't paid for SK Telecom's (Nasdaq: SKM) trial of Flash OFDM technology in South Korea (see Flarion Cookin' Up Seoul Food).

In an attempt to kill speculation that is circulating on our message board, Flarion called up to clarify the situation. SK is paying for the cellsite, backhaul, antennas, cabling, subscriber terminals, vehicles, and so on.

Flarion has -- of course – stumped up for the base stations it provided for the trial.

re: Flarion: We Don't Have to Pay In a PR. Flarion noted that the frequency for the trial is not identified. It seems strange for the vendor to claim a trial and not have the frequency identified. Unless Flarion has a SDR approach.

re: Flarion: We Don't Have to Pay They're still talking the govt about what spectrum to use. See the story:

"There's still one minor problem to be ironed out before Flarion can get a little Seoul food -- SK Telecom and the South Korean government have to agree on exactly what spectrum can be used for the trial. "We don't expect any delays," Haraldsvik says, adding that Flarion has held off announcing the trial before now because of the spectrum issue."
