SAN JOSE, Calif. and MONTREAL -- The WiMAX Forum, a non-profit corporation formed to promote and certify compatibility and interoperability of broadband wireless products announced, at the WCA Symposium held in San Jose this week, the first fixed wireless broadband network products to achieve the designation of WiMAX Forum Certified. Montreal-based Wavesat is the first supplier worldwide to receive this highly sought certification for customer premise equipment (CPE) solution.

Wavesat’s miniMAX CPE passed stringent and extensive tests, related to protocol conformance, radio conformance and interoperability testing in order to attain the WiMAX Forum Certification seal. The miniMAX CPE solution, part of the Evolutive WiMAX Series is available to OEM / ODM’s worldwide to accelerate the design of 3.5 GHz WiMAX certifiable customer premise equipment compliant to the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard and its Corrigendum.

"Completing the Certification of our miniMAX subscriber platform is a major milestone for the industry and for the development of Wavesat's Evolutive Concept," said Frank Draper, vice president of sales at Wavesat. "This places us in a very strong leadership position and will enable our OEM and ODM partners to supply low-cost, high-quality WiMAX CPEs for the fixed market now."

Ron Resnick, president of the WiMAX Forum said, "The achievement of Certification is a result of the successful collaboration of our Certification Working Group, ETSI, Cetecom Spain and WiMAX suppliers such as Wavesat. We believe there are more robust fixed WiMAX systems coming to market than what was originally expected."
